District receives more than 20 Golden Footballs for alumni who played in Super Bowl


While this year’s NFL season might have ended with the Denver Broncos winning the Big Game, Super Bowl memories are alive and well in several Dallas ISD high schools.

The National Football League recently sent commemorative Wilson Golden Footballs to the high schools that graduated a player or coach who appeared in a Super Bowl. Dallas ISD high schools have received more than 20 Golden Footballs to honor those players.
