What to expect from the FOX West Texas sports team for the 2021 high school football season

High school football teams in the Big Country and Concho Valley kicked off practices Monday morning.

SAN ANGELO, Texas — The smell of West Texas high school football is back in the air, and it’s here to stay for the rest of the year.

We’ll be covering schools in the Concho Valley and the Big Country (61 schools total) and this is only the beginning.

This will be no ordinary coverage. We’ll be bringing you the latest information from coaches, players and teams overall. We’ll also provide features on individual players and the coaching staff, showing signs of gratitude and leadership throughout the season. If a player announces his commitment, we’ll be there to provide the full story. If a coach or player overcomes adversity, we’ll be there to tell the stories.

San Angelo and Abilene area residents love their high school football teams. This game goes far beyond blocking and tackling. It creates a bond that will last forever along with early life lessons for the students involved. Think about it, coaches who’ve been apart of this atmosphere for decades never forget the players they’ve impacted over the years. Sometimes those former players eventually become coaches, or even college and professional players themselves; or they become everyday leaders within their communities.

We’ve overcome several obstacles this past year. From social distancing, canceled spring practices and delayed regular season starts, people are thrilled for normal scheduling again.

So without further ado, let’s football.
