On December 16th, 2011 the Refugio Bobcats were victorious in the State Title game against the Cisco Loboes. With a score of 36-35, the Bobcats claimed their third Championship in school history, and the first since 1982. It was Coach Jason Herring's second championship, as he coached the Sonora Broncos to a title in 2000.
In 2011, ESPN's Outside the Lines program highlighted Jason Herring and the Refugio High School football team's preparation for the state playoffs, where they routinely could not avoid running up the score. Having missed the state championship game in three consecutive years, Coach Herring decided to better prepare his team for the postseason, resulting in a heated controversy that even led to death threats to the coach.
