The chorus featured in the rehearsal scene was the Viking Choir from Homewood-Flossmoor High School in Flossmoor, Illinois, though the picture was filmed at Glenbard West High School in Glen Ellyn, Illinois. There was an additional scene that was cut of the chorus performing in the outdoor amphitheater and featuring an original song written for the film, "Learning How to Love", also cut. See more
There are several things wrong with the Hail Mary play near the end of the movie, in which the ball is thrown to a wide-open Lucas. First, it was an illegal football play. There can be only one forward pass per play, and the ball had already been thrown forward to Lucas to avoid a sack before Lucas threw it back to the quarterback and ran down field to make the "big catch." In addition, Lucas was never in control of the ball after it was thrown to him a second time, meaning the pass was incomplete when Lucas dropped the ball. Instead, the players treat the ball as being live, leading to Lucas tackling the opposing player and being injured. Lucas was also playing offensive tackle, and would therefore be an ineligible receiver unless the referee was notified, which he was not. See more
