ROCKDALE, Texas -- The Rockdale football team will face Brock Thursday afternoon for the Class 3A Division 1 State Championship. Kick-off is scheduled for 3:00pm at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

It's a game that means a lot to a Rockdale program who is making its first trip to a State Title game since 1976. Tiger head coach Jeff Miller said, "Been a lot of good football come through Rockdale in the past 41 years that didn't make it there and a lot of great football players." Miller added, "There is so much that goes into getting to the state game in the first place. You have to have some luck, you have to have some bounces go your way, you have to stay healthy and things of that nature and fortunately we've done those this year."

Rockdale enters the State Championship game with a 12-3 record. Brock is 13-2.
