The saying in pro, college and high school athletics is that championships are earned and not given. So is the right to purchase a championship ring. In an effort to be fair, Allen ISD is offering its students that were not a part of the 2013 Allen Eagle Football Team a chance to order a ring too. Of course this isn't sitting well with members of the football team.
The Allen High School website as of Tuesday, February 11 has a link directing students to a form where they can purchase the ring for $299 with a $50 deposit. While it is not the exact same ring as the football team's ring, it will be very similar in almost every aspect. Balfour, company supplying the rings, will be on the Allen campus on Thursday to take the orders from non-members of the football team.
