I played a few sports at Snyder High School, but my big thing was football. I played quarterback and defensive back until my senior year, when I quit to start acting in plays. You know what a big deal high school football is: When I quit, some of the coaches questioned my manhood. What I remember most is a junior varsity game against Lamesa. We were ahead until the last play of the game, when Lamesa’s quarterback threw a pass all the way down the field. The receiver caught it, and as he ran for the end zone, I grabbed his legs and tackled him at the seven-yard line. But then he crawled into the end zone, and the referee called a touchdown! There was a brawl, and like everyone else I was outraged. It was one of the first times in my life that I realized the world isn’t necessarily as fair as it’s supposed to be.
