Friday Night Lights: Comparing the Characters to NFL Players

Friday Night Lights, the greatest football TV series of all time, finished its last season this year. The show focused on the importance of high school football in Texas, and the difficulties that follow with it. Eric Taylor was the main character, as the story followed his career from West Dillon to East Dillon where he led three teams to the state championship, over six years.

Friday Night Lights won numerous Emmys over the course of its six-year run. The show was like an extended version of the movie, Friday Night Lights, except it was an improved version due to the fact that it did a better job of capturing all the aspects of life in Texas, because it was more than two hours long. 

Friday Night Lights featured many characters in it, a lot of which were football players. Their on- and off-the-field characteristics can all be compared with actual NFL players.
