During the course of the season, THREE YOUNG STARS emerge who are forced to carry the burden of the town and their teammates as they confront their uncertain future. Written by
After watching this film, it just didn't sit right with me. I admire the passion that Massillon displays for their football team, but it just seems the school and the town have their priorities in the wrong place.
Just one look at their stadium and it's no wonder the school is bankrupt, 15,000+ seating, a huge electronic scoreboard, a real live tiger roaming the sidelines, fireworks after the team scores. And yet, the school is threatening to make cut-backs if a tax levy does not pass. Where will the cut-backs come from? Why, not the precious football program of course. I'm sure teachers will lose their jobs before the tiger handler does.
Massillon has a convicted rapist on the team, deals with allegations of recruiting violations, has players "red-shirted"--held back in school a year so they'll be more mature for football--and yet the school administrators claim that education is the school's priority. Yeah right. The players are the kings of the town because they can pass a football, but yet can barely pass their ACTs. This is not what high school should be like.
This is a really well done documentary, but just made me sad.
