Texas Hometown Heroes
PRESENTED BY CHEVY SILVERADO
Episode 6:    
Worst to first?
A year after going 0-10, head coach Bobby Reyes helped Nacogdoches bounce back in a big way this fall. The Dragons even ended a string of losses against rival Lufkin that dated back over 20 years.
Episode 6:    
West on the way back
A shocking blast at a fertilizer plant rocked the town of West earlier this year. The Waco-area community will be changed forever in the aftermath of that event, but high school football remains an appreciated bit of normalcy.
Episode 5:    
Texas City twins get it done
Future Longhorns and twin brothers Armanti and D'Onta Foreman are the quintessential high school football heroes in this town of 45,000 – appropriately named Texas City. The Foremans are in the midst of special senior seasons.
Episode 4:    
Great expectations at Lake Travis
In 2010, an unproven 33-year old named Hank Carter stepped in took over a program that had won three consecutive state titles and 32 games in a row overall. Now in his fourth year, Carter has helped the Cavaliers extend one of the greatest runs in Texas high school football history.
Episode 3:    
The Voice of Brownwood
Dallas Huston didn't let an Adam's apple injury stop him from becoming one of the most legendary broadcasters in the history of Texas high school football. Huston has been broadcasting Brownwood Lions games since 1963 and on the call for six state championship game victories.
Episode 2:    
Starting from the bottom
What began 21 years ago with 17 varsity players has blossomed into a Class 4A powerhouse at Aledo under head coach Tim Buchanan. Under the veteran coach's direction, the Bearcats have won four state titles and produced one of high school football's legendary performers in Johnathan Gray.
