Storyline

Dateline # Austin, TX. Barefoot Bobby Briggs, the legendary running back for the Austin Steers was today sentenced to die for his role in the armed robbery/murder at a downtown Stop 'n Go convenience store... It's five years later, and Bobby's appeals have all but run out, and the Austin Steers are - once again - on the march to the Superbowl, with a lock on the playoffs, when their wide receiver has a season ending injury. With their playoff hopes in shambles, the Governor of Texas controversially offers Bobby a furlough # from death row # to help rescue the Steers' post-season hopes, and even play in the Superbowl. Death & Texas chronicles the bizarre story of Bobby Briggs, whose pro-career was cut short when he was sentenced to die. Guided by implacable anti-death-penalty advocate Marshall Ledger, Bobby plays the only card he has left # his undoubted prowess on the football field. The final days of his appeals to the courts and the Governor play out side-by-side with the Steers' ... Written by Stephen Israel

I was in this movie!
13 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

This was back in my attempted foray into the world of acting. I was 24 years old and had no real acting experience besides being an extra in several movies and TV shows around 2002-2004.

I was an extra. I was a tight end in Bobby's pro team practice. Im number 80! It was extremely low budget. I did it for free.

You can rent it on from that one DVD service.

Shooting for this was a joke. When I saw Corbin Bernsen standing near craft services, I realized this was going nowhere...I really do apologize for the existence of this movie. I never actually saw it and would truly assume it to be a bad movie. But hey, enjoy!
