Six Man Football Stadium Cherokee Texas

Cherokee Texas is a small town in San Saba county Texas which is home to only a handful of people. It is home to one of the few six man football teams in Texas. Six man football teams were common for many years in small school districts where there where not enough players for regular football. The Cherokee Indians have one the Texas six man football championship a couple of times, including 1973 and 1978. Six man football is beginning to slowly fade out in Texas since many rural schools such as the one in Cherokee are losing population. Despite that, six man football in Texas will probably not go away so easily since it is steeped in tradition and history.
