Sweeny Dogs

Sweeny Bulldogs comes out the tunnel before an away football game in 2019. The UIL will now allow live broadcasts for games.

In order to increase the accessibility of high school football games and encourage social distancing, the University Interscholastic League lifted its ban on live telecasts of Friday night high school football games.

The suspension of the UIL rule will only be for the 2020-21 season, according to a UIL statement.
