The game itself is only a part of Friday Night Lights

The Perry cheerleaders hold a banner as they and the Blue Brigade await the storming of Dewey Field Friday by the Bluejay football team.

Friday night football is a tradition all across the country. While the game draws much of the attention, there are a whole host of others involved in the pageantry that turns high school football into such a cultural institution. From the color guard to the band, from the signal squad to the cheerleaders and from the student section, the fans, the concession workers, the ticket takers and a hole host of volunteers, Friday Night Lights, as a totality, is much more than a simple football game.
