Century in the Making - Texas Football

On November 26, 1994, we went to see two H.S. football playoff games at Texas Stadium. Plano played in the first game and Plano East played in the second game. Little did we know how memorable AND special the Plano East game would become to us. To make a long story short, Plano East was getting clobbered by Tyler...until the second half. They made an amazing comeback and took the lead with just a few seconds left. However, on the kickoff with just seconds remaining, Tyler returned the kickoff for a TD and East lost. It was incredible. You can see it here on YouTube, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHkABO0VwCg The radio announcers made the come back even more special (I think I'm gonna throw up). The guy doing the play by play is Eddie Clinton. Eddie is former sportscaster from Lubbock and Dallas. I didn't know Eddie then, but I know him now because now he's my brother-in-law. Y'all know Eddie as eddyc5555. So why am I babbling about this?? Well.....American Airlines and the host committee for the 2011 Super Bowl (being played in Cowboys Stadium) is promoting the greatest moments in Texas Football history. And yes, the Plano East/John Tyler game is in the running. I know I've never witnessed anything like that game before or since. I'd vote for it even if I didn't know Eddie from Adam. The winners, there will be 5, will be recognized during the Super Bowl. Please support Eddie and Plano East.
