|Tascosa High School, opening its doors in 1958, began a spirit of sports enthusiasm by winning a city championship that first year. Since then, a continuing heritage of excellence and tradition have surrounded the red and black rebel. Early school symbols were centered around the Old South, but were eventually replaced by a western image; mascot, General Reb, was replaced by the "Rebel Kid," and the Confederate flag by their Rebel flag. The cannon, donated to the school exactly 100 years after Texas entered the Civil War, stands in the school commons, a silent symbol of the school's rich heritage.
