Student documentary looks back on Argyle’s 2013 football season

One of the best things about having a great season is looking back at it a few months later. It’s fun to relieve those moments of joy, when for one once, your team wasn’t always on the losing end of the final score.

The Talon, Argyle’s student newspaper, produced this short documentary on the Eagles’ run to the 2013 3A Division II football state championship. The documentary will be submitted for an upcoming University Interscholastic League contest.

It’s a very solid effort for a group of high school kids, and it’s definitely worth watching. In case you’re wondering, we’re 174 days away from the first games of the season.
