North Texas is no stranger to championship rings, even at the high school level.
The 2011 high school 5A football champion Southlake Carroll Dragons picked up their championship rings Thursday.
The rings, made by class ring company Balfour, were available for players, coaches and parents.
The rings cost between $280 and $1,000 each, depending on the options the buyer chose. The average cost was $500, the school said.
Each student had to purchase his own ring. A University Interscholastic League rule prohibits school districts from buying championship rings.
In the past, Balfour has also made championship rings for Abilene and Lake Travis high schools.
