Undefeated, the heart-warming story of an inner-city high school, a group of kids who bettered themselves through football, and the volunteers who made it all possible, won the Oscar for best documentary at the 2012 Academy Awards. Now, one year later, the film is finally coming to Blu-ray and DVD so everyone can see the story of Coach Bill Courtney’s final season at Manassas high school and the success that team and its players experienced.

I recently had a chance to talk to Coach Courtney in anticipation of the film’s Blu-ray release. He talked about his current relationship with the players from the team, how the film developed from a small documentary about one player, and his advice to others volunteering with underprivileged kids.

Check it the interview below.

We Got This Covered: You’re no longer coaching at Manassas. Do you miss being there?

Bill Courtney: Yeah I miss it every day. »
