In the movie it makes it seem like the second game of the 2004 season is played against Clayton valley, but that is incorrect. The second game of the 2004 season was a home game for De La Salle against Clovis West High School and De La Salle lost 30-12. They did play a team from Clayton valley that year, but that game ended in a 17-17 tie. See more »
Why don't you tackle him? This is a contact sport. You can hit someone; it's encouraged even!

I saw this movie at a screening and was going with the idea of yeah OK ill go see it... its free. Wow... I was pleasantly surprised with this un-promoted film. I feel this didn't get enough TV ad time as it should have as I fell that this is one of the best football films made. It will make any fan and any family member of a player appreciate the game that much more. It goes to show what the teens really go through to be the best in the game and how the loss effects the team and how they need to get over the loss and move on. With todays society and the "no one looses" "participation trophys" this film is a must. Show the character effects of how people need to LOOSE and over come it versus no everyone wins. Pretty close film to "undefeated" but better.
