Storyline

McKees Rocks, PA located 12 miles from Pittsburgh, is quintessential small town America - population 6000. It's a former coal-mining town that turned to the steel industry and then the airline industry. Airline cutbacks and loss of jobs have taken McKees Rocks into a notable economic decline in recent years. The high school football team, the Montour Spartans is also in total disarray. In spite of their past glory - when they won State championships, were known to go without ever losing a game and the players were local heroes - the football team has lost almost every game for the last several years. But the town still remembers what it was like to be proud of their team and to this day tell their children stories of big games, star players, and triumphant moments. Thousands of people still come out to support the team but they don't have much to brag about. But that's all about to change. Enter NFL legend DICK BUTKUS. He's here to give this ragtag high school football team a ... Written by Anonymous

Bound For Less Than Mediocrity
8 November 2005 | by houckolaSee all my reviews

I am a proud graduate of Montour High School, and a Spartan for life. I was so excited when I heard that this show was being made. I live in South Carolina now and am far away from home, have been for several years. It was so cool seeing home on national TV. The show was well made and shed a good light on the community. I think that an outsider would've also enjoyed the show but for different reasons. Some problems with the show were the fact that these kids didn't play as hard as they should've. If I was on ESPN, I'd work my ass off to make the plays, and wouldn't make excuses every game. Coach Dick Butkus wasn't very supportive, not nearly as much as Ray Crockett, who he brought in to help out. All in all I really enjoyed the show despite the bitter losses. And am still proud to call myself a Spartan.
