It was a wonderful experience playing high school football for my father. The high school coach is an incredibly important figure in small towns like Kiln, Mississippi. Sometimes my dad seemed more like the mayor of the town than the football coach. --Brett Favre

Unless you've been to Mississippi, you can't begin to undertsand the importance of high school football in small towns throughout the state. In many places, high school football is all that exists. --Steve McNair

There were two important events during the week: Friday night football and Sunday church. In many cases the coach and the preacher were saying the same things. There is a fuzzy line between the two. You talk a lot of football at church and learn a lot about God at football practice. --Jerry Rice
