Ken & Chris Talk Texas High School Football
brought to you by Lone Star Gridiron
The AUTHORITY on Texas High School Football! ™
Each week LSG founder, Chris Doelle and Coach Ken Purcell sit down and discuss the action across the state as well as the beliefs that have made the two friends and co-authors of the soon-to-be-released book All I Need to Know I Learned From My Texas High School Football Coach: A handbook of wisdom for parents, young people and yes, even coaches! (preorders are available here)
Tune in each week during the football season for analysis on the teams and athletes and also some insight into what makes Texas high school football so great.
This week, Ken and Chris talk about:
- Some of the great matchups around the state from the previous week
- The Woodlands is FOR REAL - will they be in a state title game this year?
- 10-1 is one of the worst records you can have as a coach
- Now is the time we separate the Contenders from the Pretenders
- Southlake Carroll has answered the critics
- Does San Angelo Central have the team to push past the DFW teams this year?
- East Texas football teams that beat each other up all year
- How the cool weather affects teams differently
- The spread offense and how it has changed the game from a scoring standpoint
- Coaches have to me much more flexible nowadays
- A great coaching matchup of Corpus Christi Calallen (Phil Danaher) vs Gregory Portland (Rick Rhoades)
- A look ahead at some of the great games coming up this week
