Friday Night Lights: A Town, A Team, And A Dream
by H. G. Bissinger Author
The Permian Panthers of Odessa—the most successful high-school football team in Texas history—offer a somber treatise on opportunity, classism, and racism in small town west Texas. Odessa is not a place for big dreams, but the Panthers can elevate a teenager out of the dust and into the national spotlight. Watch as the economy builds and collapses, as county lines are drawn to divide, and how even small town football is impacted by oil meddling! Whether the town's biggest problem is murder or unemployment; every Friday for four months of each year, the Panthers create big drama. Controversial in real-life Odessa, the single-minded devotion of these players are chronicled in this true story that will shock you as it transports you into the dust, drama, and dreams.
