The Mustangs logo is the same as the running horse of the Canadian Football League's Calgary Stampeders; the team that Dwayne Johnson previously had a tryout with as a defensive tackle in 1995. The Stampeders first used that logo when Metro Ford was a major sponsor and was promoting the Ford Mustang, which also has the same logo. See more »

Gridiron Gang is based on a true story about a juvi detention center that starts a football program to help troubled kids. There's really nothing new here, idle hands are the devil's work. Kids in trouble simply don't have anything to focus on. The story is about an administrator that takes a chance on a coach who almost wrecks the program, but pulls it out with the help of the kids. This is one of those quintessential feel good films about overcoming the odds and succeeding. Some good acting and good directing with the help if some way too tight camera shots help make the film look more realistic. A class A film to make you fell good about the system.
