I remember the golden years of the Dallas Cowboys' dynasty. The first time I got laid out in 7th grade football practice. The Thanksgivings spent playing tackle football with my cousins. 

Football is a pastime in the state of Texas. Year round, attention is paid to every facet of the sport: recruitment, draft day, pre-season, pee-wee football, and college rankings. 

This is the beginning of a long-term project that delves into the culture of football in my home state.
