On Tuesday, Dec. 21st, Dallas will celebrate South Oak Cliff High School’s football team, the newly crowned District 5A Division II champions.

At AT&T Stadium on Saturday, SOC defeated Liberty Hill by a score of 23-14 and claimed the UIL Class 5A Division II State Title. In doing so, they made history, becoming the first Dallas ISD school to win a Texas football state championship since 1958.

After the game SOC head coach Jason Todd said the win, “wasn’t a South Oak Cliff thing; this was about Dallas.”
