In 2008 as Sulphur Springs Wildcats played a record 16-games, winning 14 and taking the Class 4A Division II State Football title.
Along the way, the Wildcats, coaches and players saw how much a multi-purpose facility would be great to use when the autumn weather turns cold and wet.
The team practiced indoors at North Lamar and Royse City and many other places along the playoff road.
Now, thanks to the voters approval of a $48.4 million bond issue. The Wildcats could be practicing in their own facility in about a year.
