Heart-felt and meaningful project!
15 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

This is the type of project that any filmmaker should be proud to work on. Great job to the crew for helping to bring light to such an important issue. Peter Berg and Andy Lauer make a dynamic team on this project by making the journey personal to the audience. If you liked "Friday Night Lights" you're going to love this project that shows the dark part of high school football. This is an emotional ride that will make you laugh and cry. You will see intelligent interviews by Al Michaels, Peter Berg, Jerry Jones, and others. Parents that have children playing high school football will be taken on an emotional ride. Please take a moment to check out this documentary. Thank you in advance for your time.
