There is a best-selling book, Friday Night Lights: A Town, a Team, and a Dream, about this uniquely American pastime that occurs in many towns and communities. There is also a movie ,Friday Night Lights, based on the book, and an NBC television show based on the movie.

This fall I attended one of the Montgomery High School football “Friday Night” games. I don’t remember who the opposing team was but I was not there to watch the game. My daughter is in the high school marching band. This is her second year in the marching band. The band performs in the fall during the halftime of each football game. My wife and I are not into football. It’s just not our thing. We’ve attended only a few games. To support our daughter we attend as many home games as we can tolerate.

I talked to my friend Frank Veronsky who suggested that I get out from behind the fence and get near the sidelines for some action shots. It was also a great way to field test the Fuji X-T2 and Fuji XF 16-55mm f/2.8 R LM WR lens I rented from @Lensrentals. The Fuji X-T2 is a new and very popular mirroless interchangeble lens camera (MILC). I had read the reviews but wanted to experience the camera for myself.

I was amazed at how well the Fuji X-T2 performed in the lighting on the field.
