Ranger Bulldogs

Ranger is a public school located in Ranger, TX, inside Eastland county.
Ranger has a proud history that largely includes being at the epicenter of what became known as the Ranger Oil Boom. The Ranger Oil Boom started on October 17, 1917, after oil was discovered at the J.H. McCleskey No. 1 drill well when oil roared up from 3,342 feet (1,019 m) below ground in Ranger, Texas. The oil discovery at Ranger was famously noted as "The Oil Boom That Won World War I". Ranger's population soared with the Boom and the town grew into the largest city between Fort Worth and Abilene. In its heyday, Ranger had a modern buisness district encompassing nearly 20 blocks of multi story brick buildings, and much of the town paved in the famous Thurber Bricks. In the decades that followed Ranger has seen a decline and many of the large buildings have vanished but the community still proudly hangs on to that Roaring Ranger spirit.
