Milam's Best Mountain Footballers since 1998

A lot of teams and a lot players...here's the best of the best!

I came to WYMT in January of 1998 and since my arrival I have seen some outstanding football players and teams.  I have thought about this for a long time and while no opinion polls are perfect, it's still good conversation.  The kids in our coverage area have given me more memories than I am able to count.  Here are just a few of those who has made the first 10 years so enjoyable.
