Herald-Leader reporter Josh Moore engagingly named 10 “small-town must-see” football games. While I rarely watch a football game and even more rarely read about games or players, Moore’s Aug. 14 piece reads like a movie. Thus, I surrender. Moore wrote one of the most endearing (football) stories I have ever read (three times).
Quote: “It doesn’t get any more small-town than this,” or “fledgling behemoth … never failed to deliver,” or “were achingly close to turning that tide.”
Enjoy Moore’s games or, even more beautiful, enjoy Moore’s writing.
