Trivia

Todd Rohal's 1986 short documentary "Tiger Town" (which seems to be completely unavailable anywhere) offers an earlier look at Massillon and its football culture, and seems a probable inspiration for this film. See more »

Great film!
25 May 2001 | by (Utah) – See all my reviews

Being a Massillon, Ohio native this was a great film. It shows community spirit and pride. The filming and presentation were very well done. I saw it at Sundance Film Festival and it is now showing at the Seattle Film Festival.

If you like football or are from a sports passionate town, it is a great movie to see.
