The real Friday Night Lights got underway last week and I caught four games as part of my research as curator of Texas High School Football: More Than The Game, an exhibit that will open at the Bob Bullock State History Museum in Austin on July 30, 2011 and run until December 31, 2011.
If you've got artifacts or items that you think should be in the exhibit, holler back.
In the meantime, here a few images from Week Zero including the Universidad Autonomico de Nuevo Leon Prep Tigres vs. Round Rock Stony Point Tigers, the Wimberley Texans vs. the Cuero Gobblers in Cuero where Wimberley broke Cuero's 33 game win streak at home in an exciting barnburner, and the Calvert Trojans vs. the Garden City Bearkats and the Throckmorton Greyhounds vs. the Follett Panthers at the Six Man Super Saturday in Hico (hicosupersix.com)where an Elvis impersonator appeared at halftime.
Favorite sign of the week was in front of a Cuero church:
“God doesn’t play favorites But we do! Go Mean Green
No one does high school football like Texas does. In case you didn't know.
