Where The Stars Of The Friday Night Lights Are Born
SAN ANGELO, TX — As each generation of Texas high school football passes, there are many experiences that are forever cherished and passed on. This is what makes these memories unique and remember — to look back at where the stars of the Friday night lights began.
Like many sports, football starts in local communities. It's the parents and volunteers like Joseph Murillo of the Sonora Flag Football League and Michael Bejil of the Boys and Girls Club of San Angelo that dedicate their time and use their experience to teach the game of football and prepare the young minds for junior high football and eventually, for some of the young athletes, the Friday Night Lights in high school.
Watch as Murillo and Bejil describe what it means to introduce young players to the game and how the Friday night lights are impacted by the beginner leagues.
