Requirements for this list

2.It can be fictional or nonfiction.
3.This list is supposed to be fun, so let’s get into it.
1.Friday Night Lights
Nothing can beat it. Nothing. The realism of small town Texas football on Friday nights makes many feel like this is the greatest show ever. Coach Eric Taylor and Tami Taylor are one of if not the top tv couples ever. Enough said.
Despite it being new, All American jumped onto the scene because of quarantine. Season 1 premiered on the CW from October 2018-March 2019 and Season 2 doing the same from October 2019-March 2020. It became one of Netflix’s top ten most watched shows. Based off of a true story, South Crenshaw star wide receiver Spencer James (who is the fictional character based off of Spencer Paysinger) mysteriously chats with Beverley (Hills) High Head Coach Billy Baker about potentially playing for Beverley. What he doesn’t understand yet, though, is the history Billy and his mom had. Watch season one to find out the truth behind Spencer’s move to Beverley in an excellent based off of a true story show.
3.QB1:Beyond the Lights
The past three senior classes, Netflix has covered three high profile high school senior QBs during their senior year. Whether it be going to classes, trouble at home, or anything else, QB1 covers it all.
4.Last Chance U
Last Chance U has covered both JUCO powerhouse East Mississippi and switched to Independence Community College after two seasons. It covers the trials and tribulations of junior college football.
5.Friday Night Tykes
Friday Night Tykes covers what is known as the most dominant youth football league in the country. The Texas Youth Football Association or “TYFA” as it is more commonly known is one of the toughest leagues in the country. But the main reason is coaches, parents, officials, and referees make it more to seem that it is an adult’s game off the field rather than with the kids on the field.
