Storyline

The Akron Holy War chronicles the storied high school football rivalry between two Akron, Ohio parochial powerhouses and the city that embraces them. Documenting nearly 60 years of history, the film also takes you inside of both schools (Archbishop Hoban and St. Vincent St. Mary), in the locker rooms and on the field during the week leading up to and culminating in 2016's game. The Akron Holy War depicts the true emotion of the game, on and off of the field, told exclusively from the people who have lived it. Whether you were involved in the first game in 1959 or last year, the sentiment holds true: The Akron Holy War is 48 minutes that lasts a lifetime. Written by Anonymous

A great, feel good, home-grown, football film that gives you hope!
26 February 2018 | by See all my reviews

I stumbled upon this film last night while looking for a good sports doc and I'm glad I did. You don't have to be a football fan to appreciate a film like this. One that delves into the family and camaraderie of what makes a team special. Also, something interesting about this, is there is no narrator. The film jumps back and forth from past to present (yet still chronological) told by people involved to give you a full unbiased story of where both schools were and where they are now!

The end game is superbly shot. Music is fantastic and seeing some cool LeBron James high football action was just icing on the cake. Highly, highly recommend!
