American Football documentary following the Manassas Tigers from Memphis, an underfunded, underprivileged team that look to flip their misfortunes under the guidance of a devoted new coach. Best Documentary winner at the 2012 Academy Awards.
In the spring of 2004 Bill Courtney, a former high school football coach turned lumber salesman, volunteered to lend Manassa a hand. When he arrived, the team consisted of 17 players, some timeworn equipment and a patch of grass masquerading as a practice field. Focusing more on winning young men than football games, the football program nevertheless began resurrecting itself and, in 2009, features the most talented team Manassas has ever fielded; a team that seems poised to end the playoff jinx that has plagued the school since time immemorial.
