Storyline

Six Man, Texas is a story of commitment and survival and the true significance of community. Set against the backdrop of shrinking rural economies, Texas' tiniest schools struggle against the pressure to consolidate with bigger schools and shut their doors. With too few students for regular 11-man football, Texas schools like Aquilla, and more than 100 more play a six-man version. Far from being downsized football, this fast, high-scoring game is a powerful cultural connection. In Six Man towns, the schools are vital community centers and virtually everyone attends the games, adopting the players as their own family. Three Way School is typical of many rural Texas schools with one exception-there is no town. Three Way sits alone in a field surrounded by thousands of acres of cotton. There are no viable towns left in the Three Way district, and the school has consolidated five rural school districts since 1945.

America's heart
15 July 2008 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

I love Texas and I love football, but this film surprised me with so much more. The real people in this story touch your heart in so many ways and remind you what Americans are in their very best, most earnest selves. The film is both inspirational and entertaining. I did not lose interest at any point, nor was I ever aware of the passage of time. It is engaging, informative, and a true representation of small town America. The camera action at the beginning of the film may be disconcerting for some, but just be patient for a little while. See Six Man, Texas and get caught up in the lives, the hopes, the dreams, and the story of these people. It's a film for all ages, and if you are lucky enough to be an American, it's your story, too.
