Nobody's crazier about football than Texas

CHECK TEXAS MONTHLY FOR THIS: Epic account of grade-school football.
  • CHECK TEXAS MONTHLY FOR THIS: Epic account of grade-school football.

Thanks to Scott Faldon, the Times-Record sports writer whose Twitter feed from Fort Smith keeps me abreast with essential sports reading, for a link to:

"Friday Night Tykes," a monumental Texas Monthly story on a dominant peewee football team in football-crazy Allen, Texas, home of the state's biggest high school stadium. It's a $60 million edifice so heroic that the elementary level football coach featured in the article compares it to the Reichstag.

It's not just about football, of course, but about obsession, priorities, kids, parents and more.
