QUESTION: Illinois State University’s football team is playing for a national title today in Frisco, Texas, a community 25 miles north of Dallas-Fort Worth, named after the St. Louis-San Francisco Railway that runs through it and, with a population of 144,640, listed as one of the five fastest growing cities in America. If the game had been played there 100 years ago today, what would Frisco's population have been?
ANSWER: Frisco had 476 residents in 1915. It is growing so quickly, it has 33,714 more residents just since 2010. When the Dallas Cowboys move their headquarters to Frisco in 2016, it will no doubt become much better known.
