Another great season!

Another great season!
Gilmer loves our Buckeyes more than ever

The award-winning and critically-acclaimed television series Friday Night Lights — set in the mythical, high school football-crazy town of Dillon, Texas — concluded a 5-year run recently.

Watching that series often reminded people watching it, usually in a good way, of our real-life situation here in the very real, high school football-crazy town of Gilmer, Texas (and it is safe to say the same feeling came over other viewers in other towns all across the Lone Star State).

MOST TEAMS who play the Gilmer Buckeyes come to realize pretty quickly that they are not just facing 11 players out on the football field. They must also contend with one of the loudest, most passionate and, especially come playoff time, best-traveling fan bases around.
