Did You Know?


The role of the judge was originally cast as Jon Voight, who had a pressing schedule conflict and a local talent was brought in. See more »


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 »

Great movie and lessons learned
16 August 2016 | by maymusmSee all my reviews

This was really a great movie.It is a must see for all real football fans, especially Texas football fans. This movie, although written by one extremely close to the story, doesn't gloss over wrong doings, but rather dispel misconceptions and outright lies. It is a movie about how young athlete (even older ones for that matter) mishandle success. In fact, the lessons learned in this movie will benefit all. It shows the very real account of how 1 bad decision can cost you everything you worked so hard for.However, all can be redeemed and bounce back. I was pretty pleased with the acting. The bonus materials with some of the real players is very insightful. Overall, it is an excellent movie.
