“We’re so happy to be able to host the second annual KSAT 12 Pigskin Classic for all of South Texas to enjoy High School Football in the Alamodome!” said Parker.
Last year’s KSAT 12 Pigskin Classic was the first of its kind in San Antonio with six teams playing in a triple-header to kick off their high school football seasons.
In 2022, thousands of fans cheered in the Alamodome as some of San Antonio’s best high school football teams battled down to the finish with the victors scoring a total of only five points more than their competitors in all three games combined.
The excitement didn’t halt at halftime as the school bands took the field. KSAT also awarded scholarships to 12 local high school students and presented Gridiron Heroes with a check for $25,000.
“When it comes to sports in South Texas, football is and has always been king. For the Alamodome, it’s no different. The KSAT Pigskin Classic, with its celebrated programs and athletes, represents a fitting exclamation point in our year-long celebration of the 30th anniversary of one of the country’s truly unique and diverse venues,” said Patricia Muzquiz Cantor, director of convention & sports facilities for the City of San Antonio.
Sports fans who would like to attend the games can purchase tickets directly through the Alamodome Ticket booth or at Ticketmaster.com.
