      This article was well done. Our history is important and must be shared with our children in order that their furtures might be bright. We can all learn from the past experiences of our elders. Sports play an important part in the lives of most members of the community in the past as well as the present. This information revealed concerning high school sports in Texas including the PVIL and the UIL is important to know.
