18 of the Best Fictional Sports Teams We Always Root For
Dillon High Panthers from Friday Night Lights
In the rural town of Dillon, Texas, the local high school football team is the biggest attraction. On Friday nights, everyone is under the field’s lights watching the team play. Before the show starts, the team is always winning, but when their quarterback is paralyzed, the second-string Matt Saracen (Zach Guilford) has to step up to the… 50-yard line. From there, the show follows the ups and downs of the team, the coach, and the lives of those even peripherally involved in this all-consuming sport. It gives a perfect glimpse at what life’s like in the towns where high school football controls everything around it!
