They say football is big in Texas, and Fort Bend football is no exception. Each Friday night, stadiums across the county are on fire with Friday night lights, spirited fans and rough and tumble competitions.

In Sugar Land, Missouri City and Stafford, there are 13 high schools that take to the fields fall Friday nights. The question on our minds at Fort Bend Focus as we dust off our stadium seats and wash our favorite jerseys is simple:  “Are you ready for some football Fort Bend?”

David Roberts, Athletic Director and Head Football Coach at Fort Bend Christian Academy, said, “We are excited about this year’s football team because we have the chance to have the best team ever at Fort Bend Christian Academy. We have a great group of young men and a great coaching staff with 215 years of combined experience.”

Fort Bend ISD boasts 11 high schools, and their season looks equally as bright according to Philip O’Neal, Athletic Director at Fort Bend ISD. “Every new season brings with it a renewed excitement for each student athlete, team, parent and school community. No one has lost a game yet, and
each feels they have the team this year to win it all.”

The Stafford High School Spartans will play 10 games this season. Athletic Director and Head Football Coach Ron Counter said, “The Stafford Spartan players and coaches
are excited about this year and believe that we are going to have a great season!  We will battle Bellville at our first home game on September 4th, which will be played on newly constructed field turf. We invite parents and the community
to join us in what will be an outstanding season of local football.”

Regardless of who you root for this fall, fans will have plenty of opportunities this season to enjoy the game close to home. To help you make it to your favorite team’s games, here are the 2015 High School Varsity Football Schedules for Fort Bend ISD, Stafford Municipal ISD and Fort Bend Christian Academy. Stand up and holler Fort Bend fans!
