Eric Taylor

Eric Taylor
The role of a coach or teacher in a High School show SHOULD be the most important one if that program plans to follow on more than one specific team or class. It should because kids graduate and are replaced by other kids; although in Hollywood it is common for students to remain seniors into their early 30’s. This might be why the role of Eric Taylor in Friday Night Lights was so good, because not only was he the focal point, but he was one of the best characters on television at the time.

We got to see many facets of Taylor’s character, and not with just how he dealt with his players. We learned about him as a father, a husband, an employee and as a human being. Consider that when Taylor was let go, and he took over the program at East Dillon, we followed his progress; and not that of the school he left behind. Some have called this the best sports related program of all time, and perhaps it was. If that is the case, Coach Eric Taylor should be a lock for this Hall. If it isn’t, it is because this beloved show, never did find a mass (or even medium) audience. We are dying to see whether Taylor pulls off the Emmy and our Hall!
