Over the course of a single football season, author Theron Hopkins travels from summer practice to a row of state championships, culminating in the Texas 5A state title game in San Antonio s Alamodome. On the way, he discovers a world wreathed with Friday night lights that offers a miraculous spectacle of hope and drama in such far-flung locales as Hillsborough, North Carolina, Valentine, Nebraska, and Sutter, California.
