Texas Six Man Football

The Dell City school student body has been shrinking for years, and a few weeks ago the unthinkable happened:  not enough players showed up for the football team and they canceled the season.  Everyone knows football is a big deal in Texas, and small towns like Dell City play a version that fields six players because they can't field an eleven man team. This year, even a six man team proved too difficult to field -- until today.  It was announced that enough players had joined the team and the season could be played.

It's a real community event -- the Friday night football game, and I am very glad they are having a season now.
