Sad news that David Edwards, the inspiration behind the book/show Friday Night Lights who was paralyzed when trying to tackle has died at 21. Full story by clicking here.
A small correction; the book was written in 1990 long before David Edwards was even in kindergarten. When preparing the movie based on the book (in 2004) director Peter Berg attended the game where Edwards was hurt. This led to the addition of the Jason Street character in the TV series.
