They say football is king, and it’s not for nothing. And while Saturdays belong to BCS-beleaguered college football and Sundays to the bounty-placing, money-hungry NFL, Friday night is pure sport. It’s the night when all over America young men step out onto the gridiron to fight for their old alma mater. In an age of interstate highways and fading small towns, high school football has the power to ignite and unite a town like few things can. Year after year, the faithful supporters live and die with the team’s record. More so than just a winning football program, it is those fans who make a town one of the best high school football towns in America.
