What's high school football mean to this Texas town? Absolutely everything when the stakes are as high off the field as they are on.
We’ve now tipped fully away from the football toward a teenage-ish soap opera punctuated with some occasional adult plotlines to keep the big audience. The football, when it exists, is pretty weak and technically loose.
Episode 15 is one of the highlights of the show so far. Some interesting and timely drama that melds the football with the drama of race in America.
