Welcome to the official website of the Riesel Indians football team. The Indians represent Riesel High School from the small town of Riesel, Texas. For the 2014 and 2015 seasons, the Indians will play in the six-team District 13 as a 2A Division-I-size school. Riesel is located roughly fifteen minutes from Waco and sits at the intersection of State Highway 6 and FM Road 1860. All 1,007 Rieselites - a number that has been slowly increasing since 1950 - are crazed about their Indians.

After nine straight losing seasons from 2000 to 2008, the Indians returned to glory in 2009 with a 6-3-1 regular season, good enough for third place in their district, and more importantly, a playoff berth. In the regional finals for the first time since 1992, the squad ultimately lost to the Joaquin Rams, 36-29. Riesel started 4-0 for the first time since 1994 (8-0) in 2010 and finished 6-4, 2-3. The Indians went 5-1 that year in games played on the road and at neutral locations. The Indians clinched a second playoff spot in three years and a third straight winning season on October 28, 2011 with a 54-21 decision over the Rice Bulldogs. Riesel went 7-3, winning seven games in a regular season for the first time since 1994 as well. The Indians advanced to the area finals where they lost to the fourth ranked team in the state, the Muenster Hornets, 32-12, finishing 8-4. In 2012, the Indians' first season back in 2A, the team finished 4-6 and 3-4 in district, good enough for fifth place - ahead of Moody, Bruceville-Eddy and Rosebud-Lott.

The team is currently led by first-year head coach Monte Endres, who previously coached at Muenster and Allen. Also on the sidelines, assistant coaches Luther Kirkpatrick, James Fortner, Walt Brock, Ray Stripling, Tommy Fadal, Barry Bennett and trainer Delores Zuniga. The team also uses a number of students to serve as trainers, waterboys and statisticians.

The Indians play at Fair Park Field, which seats approximately 1,580. Along with a new two-floor junior high and high school building, the stadium was renovated to become the nicest facility of a school its size in the area. Changes included a larger home grandstand with a three-room pressbox, a new track, and a revamped field, now in its best condition ever.
