'Friday Night Lights' Sequel Published
Twenty-two years after he wrote Friday Night Lights, his classic account of high school football, Buzz Bissinger has penned a sequel.
After Friday Night Lights, which is being published as an original ebook single from Byliner, explores Bissinger's complex quarter-century relationship with Boobie Miles, the star running back at Permian High School in Odessa, Texas, whose career was cut short by an injury.
Boobie Miles' story was at the center of the book. During the 1987 season, he gained 1,385 yards as the team's running back and was being recruited by such colleges such as Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas and USC. During the 1988 preseason he injured his knee and never fully recovered, eventually quitting the team.
