Texas HS offering a state championship ring to all students...and not everyone's happy about it

Allen_ring

Allen won its second consecutive state championship this season, taking home the Class 5A Division I crown back with a 63-28 win over Pearland back on December 21. 

Now, two months later, it's time to commemorate the win with customary championship rings, and Allen (in conjunction with the ring manufacturer, no doubt) is offering the entire student body to share a piece of the glory.

A northern suburb of Dallas - perhaps best known as the city with the $60 million stadium - Allen is now the largest high school in the state of Texas with 5,987 students, so the Eagles could be in line to make some serious change off of this promotion. 

However, many in the Texas high school football community aren't happy about this.

Now, for the high school coaches in our audience, is this a slap in the face to the players who won those rings or an ingenious fundraising idea? Would your school do the same if you were fortunate enough to win a state championship?

Here's a smattering of the feedback we've received on Twitter.
