Friday Night Lights

Permian advances to the state finals and plays Dallas Carter High School. Carter dominates in the first half and leads 26-7. Permian comes back and the score in the 4th quarter is 34-28 Carter. After stopping Carter on forth down, Permian gets the ball back on their own 25 yard line with 1:40 remaining. They drive all the way to the Carter 1 yard line but a holding call pushes them back to the 10 yard line with just seconds left. On the last play the quarterback can't find anyone open and runs the ball. He is tackled just a foot short of the goal line. Permian loses 34-28. The next season Permian goes undefeated and wins the state title.

Continuity mistake: The sign says it is 3rd down with 10 yards to go. Announcer says the play went for 6 yards, but the sign now reads 4th down and 8 yards to go instead of 4 yards to go. (01:33:40)

More quotes from Friday Night Lights

Question: I don't know anything about football and the college drafting process, but isn't odd that the QB from the Odessa Panthers did not receive some kind of college scholarship? After all, he was theoretically the 2nd best QB in the state, as his team made it to the State playoff game, even if they ended up losing.

Answer: In the movie he was being recruited by the fake school, I forget the name something Kansas. And at the end it said that he played football for Baylor, so I think he did get a scholarship. But in many cases just because a player is on a good team does not mean he has what it takes to play at the next level, there is a big difference between high school and college. For instance you could be the starting QB on a State Championship team, but the team is mainly a running team, and almost never passes, or you are a running QB who almost never throws the ball, you might be really successful in High School, but not have any of the skills to play QB college.

Winchell never received a scholarship despite setting records at Permian. He was known for choking up in tight games, which could be the reason he never got recruited. He played at Baylor his freshman year but was not successful. He's the best QB Permian ever had and maybe west Texas.

Answer: Winchell also choked up the last game against Lee and three four consecutive incomplete passes to win.
