Kenny Chesney sings about high school football

I may not be a country music fan (at least not pop country), but but I still got chills down my spine watching Kenny Chesney's newest music video for "The Boys of Fall", a song about the fall football season. This week it reached #1 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country chart.

The speech by New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton is touching and should resonate with any person who has played high school sports (not just football).

Check it out:

Chesney, of Johnson City, Tennessee, is singing about high school ball despite all the professional faces in the video. Every fall, towns of all sizes come together to support one school team in an act that transcends the label of sport.

This song and video is just another example of sport being more than "just a game."
