It’s probably hard to remember when Keller was a one-horse town. But it’s not so hard to remember when it was a one-high-school town.
It was that way until 1994, when Fossil Ridge was built, followed, of course, by Central and Timber Creek.
It’s worth imagining, though — for a fun football hypothetical — what if Keller still only had one high school? With all the talent spread across these four schools, what would that football team look like?
“If it was one big old high school, it would be pretty salty,” Keller coach Carl Stralow said.
When you think of one-high school programs across this area, including the obvious such as Allen and Southlake Carroll, most tend to be highly successful.
So as a fun exercise for the football brain, we put together a hypothetical one-school football team for the Keller ISD. How would your team compare to ours?
