Yellowjackets Season Ends in Third Round

The Yellowjackets terrific season came to an end on Friday night with a third round playoff loss to La Pryor by a score of 35-27.  It was an exciting game with a lot of big plays and multiple lead changes.  Sabinal finishes their season with an Area Championship and a 10-2 record.  This was only the second time in the history of the school to reach the double-digit 10-win milestone.   Congratulations to all the players and coaches on a great season!

Welcome to the Sabinal High School Football website!

This site is dedicated to documenting the history of the Sabinal Yellowjacket High School Football program.

Sabinal, Texas is located 60 miles west of San Antonio on highway 90.  Just like thousands of other communities across the state of Texas and country, Sabinal has a passion for their local high school football team.           

For 42 years, Ross Burris (Sabinal Class of 1953) has been a mainstay in the press box of Sabinal football games as the team statistician.  After each game, Ross communicated the stats to area newspapers in San Antonio, Hondo, Uvalde, and Sabinal.   He finally hung up his clip board after the 2010 season.  

Over the years, Ross also researched the history of the Yellowjacket football team going back to their inaugural season in 1919.  This research material, combined with all the stats he collected over the years, forms the basis of the content for this web site.  Randy Burris (Sabinal Class of 1985), son of Ross Burris, developed this web site along with Randy’s wife, Nive Burris.   

We hope all current and former Sabinal football players, coaches, students, and fans enjoy the site.  More pictures, records, and information will be added in the coming months.  Also keep up with the current Yellowjacket team as each week’s game results will be posted. 

If anyone has pictures, articles, information, or good memories they’d like to share on the site, please email them to , and we’ll be happy to post them.  You will be credited accordingly.  We have tried hard to ensure the content on the site is accurate.  Please let us know if any inaccuracies are found. 

A book version of Sabinal football history is in the works.  More to come on this…
