HIGH ISLAND, TEXAS (KWWL / NBC NEWS) - During the last few months we've brought you stories of several tornado ravaged communities including Parkersburg, still on the long road to recovery .

At the heart of town's spirit:  The Aplington-Parkersburg Falcon football team.  Their 2008 season gave community members something to rally behind in the rebuilding process.

Now, another team farther south is now on a similar path as Parkersburg and the Falcons.

High Island, Texas was hit by Hurricane Ike.  The storm scattered debris for miles, it also scattered the students of High Island School. 

Watch the video to see how the town was able to use football, to bring people back together.
