When Woodforest Bank Stadium opened its gates in 2008, it was the crown jewel of a Conroe ISD sports complex that came with a $40 million price tag. And since that time, The Woodlands High School football program has certainly gotten its money’s worth.

The Highlanders captured their 30th consecutive victory at their home venue on Friday evening, defeating George Ranch 52-12 in non-district action behind 313 all-purpose yards and five touchdowns from Texas Tech commit Kesean Carter. Read more…
