These Friday Night Lights Stars Reunited and It Was Beautiful

1 minute read

The unbreakable bond between the Panther football players was the heart and soul behind the beloved fictional world of Friday Night Lights. So it should greatly please every FNL fan to see that some of those friendships stretched beyond Dillon, Texas, and are still going strong today.

Scott Porter, who played Jason Street on the show, welcomed his first child with wife Kelsey Mayfield in May this year. On Tuesday, Porter posted an Instagram of himself kissing the top of his son McCoy’s head while fellow FNL actors Matt Lauria and Gaius Charles stood smiling with their arms around him. Lauria and Charles portrayed characters Luke Cafferty and Brian ‘Smash’ Williams, respectively, on the acclaimed television drama.

“‘Good friends…livin’ large in Texas’…and babies. #TexasForever,” Porter captioned the photo, alluding to one of the most well-known quotes from the show.

Coach Taylor would certainly approve.
