K-12 Sports: Friday Night Lights

I just finished reading Bissinger’s Friday Night Lights.

The bestselling story of life in the football-driven town of Odessa, Texas, explores how the town’s passion for the team inspires–and sometimes shatters–the young men who wear the Panther uniform.

Having lived in Texas some years ago, Bissinger presents a very accurate picture of Texas High School Football. Read David Bernhardt’s thoughts on K-12 sports for another perspective.
