High school football in Texas today is quite different from high school football years ago. Not too many years ago squads were limited in number so that scrimmage was possible only by playing the left side of the line against the right side of the same line. The school with a squad large enough to suit up to twenty-two players for a scrimmage at one time was the exception rather than the rule. Not every boy who liked to play football could enjoy the privilege of using a headgear, a pair of shoes. Assistant coaches and equipment rooms were not necessary. Spectators at the games roamed the sidelines and were not numerous enough to require grandstands. Players knew that starting the game meant playing the game until either injury necessitated removal, or the score had mounted to such lopsided proportions that the entry of any substitute could not possibly make a difference.
