Will Clark loves his job as radio announcer for the local high school football team, the Nowata Possums. He loves it so much that he continues announcing even after the town decides to cancel the football program. But when his imaginary teams starts to contend for the state championship, he not only must deal with the real state champs, but he must reckon with the hopes and dreams of the people of Nowata as well.Written by

The county and city name, Nowata, is derived from a Delaware Indian word, noweata, meaning "welcome". According to one story, two railway surveyors rented rooms from an educated Cherokee woman and asked her for possible station names for towns along the line. The woman suggested "Noweata". There are two stories of how the spelling changed; one is that the post office misspelled the name of the town in their official records; another story tells of how a drunken painter misspelled "Nowata" on the depot and the name stuck.

Possums - family movie that at least makes you smile
I really like Mac Davis even though the writing could have been a little better this is a movie that makes you smile. I love it when the state champion coach turns to the ref and asks "We won didn't we?" The supporting actors gave the movie homespun flavor and the mayor made it so easy to not like him.
When the movie is over you get up feeling encouraged and a smile on your face. It's worth the time. I actually found this movie in the public library. It was originally on VHS and I found it at a yard sale on DVD I bought it and donated it to the library and she gave me the VHS. When the tape finally tore up librarian gave the DVD to me saying it was time to retire the movie. I gladly accepted it.
