ControversyEdit

In February 2008, some students from Angleton High School sawed off and stole the swords from in front of Brazoswood High School in an effort to perform a memorable high school prank. It's a heated high school rivalry, and officials soon realized who was responsible. For the past 20 years the swords have stood at the entrance of Brazoswood High School. They are a symbol of pride for the Buccaneers. That pride was damaged as students arrived at school finding the swords missing. The display where they once stood was wrapped in purple tape. Purple is Angleton's color. A series of text messages helped Clute police track the three 17-year-olds down. They found the swords at one of their homes. The swords were taken back to the school and welded back in their rightful place, and they continue to stand at the entrance to Brazoswood High School to this day.
