Friday Night Lights

Coach Eric Taylor lives in Dillon, TX and coaches football at East Dillon High School.  The town of Dillon has two high schools: East Dillon and West Dillon.  West Dillon is in a nicer part of town with wealthier residents (and more football boosters), while East Dillon is in the rougher/impoverished part of town (but just so happens to have the better football team).  The city of Dillon, which is in a fiscal crisis, has to cut one of the football programs to save money.  This clip shows the school board/city officials trying to figure out what to do. This clip is a powerful example of consolidation.
