Women's football returned as a sports program in 2014, and men's football followed suit when the UTRGV launched its first programs for men's and women's basketball in 2015.
In 2013, the Vipers also became NBA Development League Development Champions, recognizing the team that best embodies the league's philosophy of developing NBA - basketball talent on demand.

After the players learned of their playoff exit, Edinburgh Coach J.J. Leija confirmed the district's decision after their lunchtime and voting sessions were conducted away from the venue.

The district has committed to developing and implementing an action plan to proactively prevent future misconduct by future students - athletes. The school district has made it clear that it had no choice and there is no need to criticize the move or what would have been done if it hadn't been. In the meantime, UIL has taken the decision to remove the football team from the playoffs, even though it has not withdrawn the team. They did so in accordance with Texas Independent School District rules and regulations.
We apologise to all athletes, staff and the school community for the inappropriate behaviour of some of our student athletes in recent weeks. We apologise and apologise again to the athletes and staff at our school and community.
The UIL strongly condemns the unsporting conduct that took place on 3 December 2020. The behavior we see at the Edinburgh - PSJA game in no way represents the values we impart in all interschool activities, including high school football, "said Dr. John D. Smith, president and executive director of Uil Public Safety and Security. Unfortunately, inappropriate behavior on and off the field and on it is nothing new for Texas football, 'the statement said.
