Even if they didn't suit up for the Allen (Texas) High football team, every student at the school can now own a commemorative state championship ring for the low, low price of $299. Then, you'd have an easier chance than Matt Saracen convincing college girls you played for a back-to-back Texas state title team.
The rings aren't too dissimilar from the ones the Eagles received, according to TexasHSFootball.com, which first reported the story (h/t Dallas Morning News), and the school's decision to open up sales of the rings to just about anyone who wants one has irked plent of folks in the community.
Take this tweet from Allen junior offensive lineman Cody Wheeler in response to @texashsfootball.
Likewise, many Texas high school football programs oppose the idea of giving rings to non-players.
Hey, Allen has to pay for that $60 million football stadium somehow, right?
