About The Book
From the best players to the best coaches and some of the most legendary schools and teams in US history, Texas high school football has it all. In the state that made “Friday Night Lights” famous, High School Football in Texas takes an inside look at the state’s greatness in the sport, from the best players when they were in high school to those who’ve gone on to be stars as collegiate players or pros. It’s about record-setters, trend-setters, and some of the most inspirational families and people you’ll ever meet. Some of the players and coaches featured include Mean Joe Greene, Earl Campbell, Andy Dalton, Eric Dickerson, and many more!
Covering several generations, this book presents high school football in a manner never done before. Some of the great stories featured recount how future Hall of Famer Drew Brees never got onto the field in his first high school football scrimmage and how Mean Joe Greene wanted to be a running back like Gale Sayers and Jim Brown. High School Football America founder Jeff Fisher mixes amazing anecdotes and interviews with the many who’ve experienced Texas high school football from every imaginable angle.
