Friday Night Lights’ Moment of Goodness: Coach Taylor Decides to Stay at Home, In Dillon

There are so many amazing moments in “Don’t Go” that it’s almost impossible to pick just one. One of the most significant moments in this episode is when Coach Taylor decides his heart belongs to Dillon. Now, I think any of us can understand why he’d seriously consider the offer from Florida. He’d basically have it made at that school with no worries about funding or recruitment money, and that’s huge. But what he wouldn’t have is all these kids he’s helped turned into men, all these kids who need him. I can’t tell you how much it moved me to watch Vince ask Coach Taylor to stay. I haven’t been the biggest Vince fan lately, but he really redeems himself. He acknowledges that without Coach Taylor he’d be dead or in jail. And with those words, Vince acknowledges how much Coach Taylor means to him and his teammates. It’s those words that touch Coach Taylor most of all and help him make the decision to stay.

Bonus moment: Buddy calls Tim Riggins family.

Extra bonus moment: Vince stands up to his father.

Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose.
