I enjoy Texas high school football in all of it’s glory – mythic and real. My nephews’ alma mater, Katy High School, just won their second consecutive 5A (largest schools) DII State Championship. To say I’m a huge fan even though I live in Chicago is an understatement.

I’d love to see what you thought of this article. So post a comment. Happy Holidays!
