9781607970590: Border Ball: The History of High School Football in the Rio Grande Valley

Border Ball: The History of High School Football in the Rio Grande Valley, is a comprehensive chronicle of the sport that has captured the area's fascination and loyalty since World War I. It mixes traditional sports history (statistics, recounting of great players, teams, games, and coaches) with oral history, as the memorable pioneers who made the Valley version of football into the most popular attraction down here tell their stories. Fans from Brownsville to Rio Grande City can read about the exploits of their teams, and learn some hitherto unknown facts and anecdotes about football's impact on community, race relations, and economics, among other aspects.
