Denton Hopkins
Friday Night Lights
Buzz Bissinger
Pg. 1-25

Since we only have to read one book this quarter, I decided to switch my reading choice. I decided to read Friday Night Lights by Buzz Bissinger. My favorite character in this book is Mike Winchell. Mike Winchell is the quarterback for odessa permian's high school football team. He's a quite young man who leads by example rather than with words. He also takes care of his mother ,because his father is gone and she is quite sick. He's respectable and upstanding, and seems like the kind of guy I would look up too.


  1. Winch seems a lot like Derek Minor to me. Niether of them show emotion too. Derek is a leader and also on the football team. I've seen the movie and it was good.

  2. Yes, Winchel Seems like derek. Maybe related?

  3. I think Winchell sounds like Tim Logemann. He is a very quiet boy, but once you get to know him, you find out that he is very nice and really is a good kid. Would you like to be like him yourself though?
