With a new school year comes a new high school football season. From now until early November every Friday night in stadiums across Texas will be where dreams are dashed and dreams come true.
It's hard to explain to people who weren't born here or didn't experience high school in the state firsthand. And sure, high school football exists in other states but in Texas it has grown to be a widescreen spectacle. It's mythic.
Heck, people have even moved to Texas because of the book, movie and TV show "Friday Night Lights."
