    I have yet to see an actual roster for the game, have you? It's not on the official web site yet. I've heard Austen Lane got an invitation, and would love to see him play.

    Texas' best players wouldn't be able to match up properly against Florida's best or California's best. Hell, even Northwestern, which isn't even the best high school football team in Florida, took out Texas' supposed "best" football team in Nationals a couple of years ago.

    Miami Northwestern High School - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    St. Thomas Aquinas is realistically the best football team in Florida. On top of that, California is also a talent breeding ground for college and professional football players. Texas does put out a ton of talent in this country, however I'm not sure why it's them that are taking on the Nation every year.

    Same reason Detroit calls itself Hockeytown -- smart marketing, and they thought of it first. Of course, they take players who were born in Texas, grew up in Texas, played High School in Texas, played college in Texas, had parents who are Texans even though they never stepped foot in the state, are named Austin or Dallas, have a relative named Austin or Dallas, played minor league baseball in Texas, enjoy Stevie Ray Vaughn, or if you're really, really, talented, they'll grant an Oklahoman special "close enough" status.

    That's why Texas wins every year.

    Danny Batten Draft Journal- Week 5

    I am playing inside linebacker and doing reps one on one with the linemen. I am adjusting to middle backer like the reads and gap responsibility.
