Hector is on the road again. His latest programme 'USA - Ó Chósta go Chósta' with TG4 takes him through the American south, home to so many wonderful and terrible things. The most recent episode caught our eye as he travelled through Mississippi and got introduced to the football team at East Mississippi Community College. Most serious fans of college football won't be too familiar with the Lions of East Mississippi Community College. East Mississippi Community College compete in the NJCAA Division 1 , which is a long way from SEC giants like Alabama and LSU, but as Hector discovers in this episode, it's clear just how huge American football in this part of the world. Check out the facilities here! The dressing room is gigantic!

As the episode goes on, Hector gets a tour of the boot room, and it's mad to see the sheer amount of stuff available for their players. Above you see him with a pair of Size 17 boots. It goes to show that American football competes with Christianity as one of the main religions of the American south.
