Texas High School Football, Under the Lights: Week 2

1988 Odessa Permian vs Midland Lee Friday Night Lights (via goten1214)

 

Highlights of the actual Permain - Midland Lee game described in the book Friday Night Lights. More after the jump. 

Another week, another road trip for Bill. This time to Aledo to see the Bearcats take on my beloved Lake Travis Travis Cavaliers. I'll wear burnt orange to stay neutral. I'll have a piece on the game on Monday along with the recap of this weekend's action in Texas High School Football. Game of the Week, doesn't do this game justice. Game of the Year, easily. Credit to state champs for scheduling each other. 

Due to travel time the Week 2 preview will be abbreviated: 

Top Match Ups: 

Houston 

#6 Brenham vs. Houston Lamar Friday 7pm

Malcom Brown and Tim Cole vs. top flight Houston ISD competition. The results should be interesting.
