California High School Pintos players watch a football game against the Hallsville High School Indians on Friday in Hallsville. The Hallsville football team has been around for about 10 years, but it has been gaining support, according to Hallsville resident Terry Frazee. "There's a lot of enthusiasm for football," Frazee said. Football is an important part of life in most of District 44 that generally brings community members out to watch the games and support their high school.
