The lights in Dillion, Texas shined bright once again as members of the cast gathered to share stories, memories and reminisce about their time on the gridiron.
As David Hudgins introduced the cast, the audience’s applause and excitement only got bigger. The packed room at the State Theatre rose to its feet after the first clip of the morning, welcoming Coach Taylor and Mrs. Taylor to the stage. Kyle Chandler and Connie Britton were surprise guests for the event.
Also on the panel were David Hudgins, Scott Porter, Gaius Charles, Matt Lauria, Louanne Stephens and Brad Leland.
Huggins took the audience on journey through the ups and down of life in Dillon for the cast. The cast also remembered their own ups and downs, but they were happy to know their fans were with them every step of the way.
This was not just evident at the standing room only turnout in the venue, but also with the sea of fans that came out for the Friday Night Lights community screening the night before. The fans were able to meet their favorite stars, take photos and get autographs. They were also able to watch their favorite episodes with the cast members.
The cast also shared memories of coming back to Austin. Porter, who played Jason Street, said it best, “The skyline may change, but the spirit of Austin is still there.” This is definitely a true testament to the city.
