Kilgore College has been known for its football program for many years, as well as its famous drill team, and they've now reached a huge milestone. This month KC Football achieved their 500th win!

With a 45-0 win over Texas A&T, KC became the first Junior College football program in Texas to reach the 500-win milestone.

As a Kilgore College alum, I watched many games from the bandstands. I attended classes with football players who were conference champions in 2001. I worked out alongside some of them of in the gym, and learned that they were dedicated to a winning program. Looking back, KC was won the conference title 26 times and participated in 20 bowl games.

The program has a tradition of winning, and I'm proud to see my school hit this milestone first in the Lone Star State. Kilgore College is typically known first for the Rangerettes, and many times the stands have cleared after the half-time show. Hopefully, with this milestone more will stay to see the Rangers finish strong!
