Goofs

While the film recognizes a "tie" with rival Duncanville, the tie-breaking rules at the time were determined by first downs. Both teams had the same number of first downs so the second tie-breaker was the number of times the teams penetrated the other team's 20-yard-line. Duncanville had more "penetrations" and were recognized as the winner of the game. See more »

Not a good movie, Period
30 November 2016 | by mizike29See all my reviews

Gave this a 3, maybe a TV movie. Carter has had a couple WAY better movies. This one is TERRIBLE. B acting overall, story a mess, not sure what these other reviewers watched, but don't waste your time on this one. There is a reason why this movie didn't even make 150k, its just a TV movie at best. We have seen this concept plenty of times in better movies. Or just watch the TV series Friday Night Lights. That covers all of this and MUCH MUCH MUCH better. Or the Program, or Facing the Giants or When the Game stands Tall. I know this touches on a very specific event but its a common theme and done so commonly that there is nothing special about this movie at all.
