Is this a southern thing?

In my town the stores sell shirts, cups, hats, and those sorts of things with the local high schools football logo.

Kroger
HEB
Walgreens
Cvs
Walmart
Target

All of them sell various items with the local high schools logo on them and it's not just my town but all the towns around here as well.

So is this a Texas thing? A southern thing? Or is that something that most towns around the US do?

Probably. I live in the north and we don't take high school sports as seriously as the south does, it seems.

The only thing they sell here in the grocery stores is Gamecock or Clemson Tiger stuff--college ball, not high school

I'm in Atlanta... Our stores do not do this. They only sell college, NFL or NBA items..no high school items.
