In Texas, high school football is akin to religion. On Friday nights, when the players take the field, the school communities of students, teachers, parents and neighbors all come together to witness the spectacle that takes place out on the field of battle. But a game between Gainesville State School and Grapevine Faith, in Grapevine Texas took place in November 2008 was different than anything else that had ever taken place before.
Grapevine Faith Head Coach Kris Hogan instructed the home fans to help cheer for the other team. A strange concept to be sure, but once you understand the reason you will have a new-found faith in humanity.
