Lone Star Gridiron

A Thanksgiving Message to Texas High School Football Fans!

We want to take a moment to thank you for supporting Texas high school football and Lone Star Gridiron!  It has been our great privileged to bring you information on the GREATEST SPORT from the GREATEST STATE for each of the past eight years.

This game that we all know and love is more than just fun.  It's more than just athletic competition.  It's about the kid playing his heart out for the kid next to him and his coach.  It's about fans holding their breath as their team tries for that fourth down conversion.  It's about wearing that football uniform - the same one your brother, father or even grandfather wore.  It's about helping your opponent up after a collision on the field and saying, "Good hit," and meaning it.  It's about the pep rally full of screaming classmates.  It's about the cheerleaders rallying a stadium in support of their team.  It's about a band marching in unison filling the fans with note after note of pure emotion. It's about the flag corp, the student trainers, the concession stand workers and the scoreboard operators.  It's about a community coming together in support of something good and wholesome.  It's about family.  It's about life!

This game is especially appropriate during the holiday season when hopefully, we all take time to reflect on the incredible blessing it is to be a part of such a great tradition - a great state - and a great nation.

Thank you for being a part of Texas high school football and thank you for allowing us to play a role in bringing it to you!  Happy Thanksgiving and have a safe and happy holiday season!
