Killeen's Maroon and White Spring Game

Killeen High head coach Neil Searcy gets his player fired up during the team's spring game Thursday at Leo Buckley Stadium.

After weeks of practice and months of anticipation, the high school football season has arrived, and Killeen is taking immediate advantage.

The Kangaroos will be the first area team to take to the field, hosting Round Rock Stony Point tonight at Leo Buckley Stadium. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Killeen is coming off a 5-5 season, including a 4-4 showing in District 12-6A to finish in a two-way tie for fifth place with Ellison.

The Tigers went 6-4 in 2018, beating the Kangaroos 21-14 in the season opener.

The remainder of area teams will begin their schedules Friday.
