Futbol Americano

The Borregos of Monterrey Prep High School (also known as “Prepa Tec”) are far and away the most successful interscholastic American football program in Mexico. The team is so good, in fact, that once a year it needs to travel north to test itself against some real competition. Sports Illustrated assigned me to document the team’s trip to take on the Allen (Texas) Eagles, starting with a practice in Monterrey and accompanying the team on its trip to the suburbs of Dallas. It didn’t turn out well for Los Borregos, who discovered that, even after a 15-hour bus ride just to get there, they still had a long way to go.
