Several players from different backgrounds try to cope with the pressures of playing football at a major university. Each deals with the pressure differently, some turn to drinking, others to drugs, and some to studying.
In small-town Texas, high school football is a religion. The head coach is deified, as long as the team is winning and 17-year-old schoolboys carry the hopes of an entire community onto the gridiron every Friday night. In his 35th year as head coach, Bud Kilmer (Jon Voight) is trying to lead his West Canaan Coyotes to their 23rd division title. When star quarterback Lance Harbor (Paul Walker) suffers an injury, the Coyotes are forced to regroup under the questionable leadership of John Moxon (James Van Der Beek), a second-string quarterback with a slightly irreverent approach to the game. "Varsity Blues" explores our obsession with sports and how teenage athletes respond to the extraordinary pressures places on them. Written by

On the DVD trailer for this film there are several scenes that never appear in the movie. For example, there is a clip with Jules tells Mox: "You woke up in the twilight zone....West Canaan, sex and football. That's all there is." Another scene where a girl in the pep-rally asks Lance to sign her ass also never appears. See more »
In some of the game scenes Billy Bob is the Coyotes' right tackle, in others he is on the left side of the offensive line. This is possible if the team used an offensive scheme which 'flopped' the 'weak' and 'strong' sides of the line. See more »

Good kids vs evil football coach. The only thing that can make such a movie watchable is memorable characters created by good actors, and here is where Varsity Blues succeeds. I love it when I go into a movie expecting to hate it and then end up enjoying it. Give this one a try.
