A group of high school football players give their town something to live for.Times were hard in Odessa, Texas, in 1988--really hard. Unemployment skyrocketed. Morale was low. But they still had something: Friday nights in the high school football stadium. And they had a good team: a team that could win. Now H.G. Bissinger\'s book about a group of high school athletes that gave their town something to live for is coming to the silver screen, starring Billy Bob Thornton.
