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:

  • The greatest sport in the greatest state builds character and more
  • How this game teaches great lessons
  • Ken learned a new word "meritocracy" from Tony Romo's press conference
  • Dax Prescott shows class and character too
  • Both Ken and Chris admit to being lifelong Dallas Cowboys fans
  • You don't win this great athletes, you win with great athletes and character
  • Some great playoff games
  • There are no turkeys left after Thanksgiving
  • Look for Ken during Prime Time of the championship games on FOX
  • Despite there being some great teams left, if you make it to the championship game, you only have to play one of them
  • Coaches need to keep it fun by adding a new play or new wrinkle, but be careful not to overcoach
  • Really good coaches scout themselves to see if there are any tendencies that opponents can pick up on
  • We are very close to having a publication date for our book!
