In a recent article by Stadium Talk, "In some parts of the country, high school football teams have traditions and legacies that stretch back to the beginnings of the sport. In other parts, high school football dynasties have just sprung up in the last decade or two. Some programs are filled with college footballs stars and NFL legends. Others have players who have been lost to time — remembered only by a fading photo in a trophy case."
