Today, we will take one last look at F. H. S. and Forney Grammar School 60 years ago. I had someone last week tell me, “Themer, that can’t be 60 years ago; I remember it like it was yesterday!” Yes, that somebody is older than I am, but not by too much!

North Forney High School Homecoming 2020

North Forney High School, like all districts in North Texas, has been faced with various challenges in this new COVID-19 era. But the real test of their resolve came when it was announced that the scheduled Homecoming football game against the Crandall High Pirates was canceled when Crandall’s team had to undergo quarantine. In “true north” fashion, though, the Falcons persevered and formulated a new plan to celebrate Homecoming and crown the 2020 Homecoming King and Queen. The week was filled with themed days and culminated with a HOCO Rally/Showcase Friday night at City Bank Stadium.

Jackrabbits Fall to Corsicana 20 to 10

On a cold blustery night, the varsity Forney Jackrabbits traveled to Corsicana last Friday to play the Tigers in what was supposed to be the first 8-5A Division II district game. Due to the current COVIDrelated situations in several of our UIL district schools, this instead turned out to be a tune up for the upcoming zone alignment. Our district has decided to split the UIL district into zones to help ensure that we have a way to allow our teams to compete for the 4 playoff spots at the end of this football season. This zone or seeding game alignment will allow time for make-up games in the event that any involved schools or communities experience viral coronavirus outbreaks. With that being said, the real district play starts for the Jackrabbits this Saturday, October 31, at 1pm at Crandall High School.

North Opens District Play with Unity Bowl Rout of Rival Forney

In 2009, to the chagrin of many long-time residents of Forney, a new high school was built on the north side of town, outside of city limits. Three years later, as North Forney High School grew, the two Forney ISD high schools found themselves in the same Class 4A football district and the Unity Bowl, an annual game between the two high schools located just miles apart was born.
