High school football in Texas is underway…albeit just the schools in the four smallest classifications. While the 4A, 3A, 2A and 1A schools are now officially getting ready for the opening of their regular seasons at the end of the month, the two biggest classifications (6A and 5A) are on the sidelines waiting for the start of their Fall practices on September 7.
To celebrate, take a look at some of the tweet from around the Lone Star State below:

Quote of the morning from @ArgyleGridiron head coach @ToddRodgers13 — “Championship teams are teams that usually merge [discipline and athleticism]. And I think we have that type of chemistry to merge those two this year.” #DentonRC #txhsfb pic.twitter.com/XorJ4Wh650— Reece Waddell (@ReeceWaddell15) August 3, 2020
Out at (@farmer_football) for Day 1 of fall practice. The Fightin’ Farmers are coming off a 2-9 season, but enter their 3rd season with Brandon Hankins as their head coach.— Joseph Hoyt (@JoeJHoyt) August 3, 2020
“Kids are resilient,” Hankins said.
