WATCH: Welcome To The Graveyard
SAN SABA, TX – From Mckinney ISD's $69.9 million dollar stadium to Katy ISD's Legacy Stadium priced at $70 million dollars, Texas high school football stadiums have become larger than life.
When it comes to the Graveyard at San Saba's Rogan Field that was built in 1935 it gives off an out of this world type of feeling.
It was in the 1930s when The Rogan Family in San Saba donated property to San Saba ISD that is now Rogan Field where the Armadillos play on Friday nights, but the only dilemma was that the land was an old graveyard.
According to San Saba assistant football coach Ronnie Schulze, who's been versed on many stories over the years about the old cemetery – now football stadium, says the bodies along with the tombstones that weren't claimed were bulldozed into the ground.
Watch as Schulze talks about the historic football stadium, his encounter with what appeared to be remains from the old cemetery, and how the community truly feels about its stadium called The Graveyard.
