High school football has a huge following throughout the country, whether the team is from a tiny outpost or a school that resembles a small college. But the sport is no bigger than in Texas, where a high school football team can rally a community and attract nearly 50,000 fans to a game.
This collection of 15 amazing stories includes former players reminiscing about their clutch performances in do-or-die playoff games, but the amazing moments aren’t always from the biggest games. The collection also includes inspirational stories such as a player’s courageous performance after his mother’s death, the kindness showed by a team’s fans as they cheered for the opponent, and the remarkable end to one team’s long losing streak.
