The Kangaroo Mascot

The Kangaroo Mascot
In the early 1920s, Ray Morrison, a beloved coach at WHS, accepted a position at Austin College in Sherman, TX.  Since Coach Morrison was so admired, Weatherford High School adopted the mascot of his new school, the kangaroo, as their own.
All schools in Weatherford ISD embrace the kangaroo mascot with school colors of Roo Blue and White.  
Kangaroo Stadium, built in 1949, is still home to Roo football, soccer, and track and field.
