It seems like a lot of new documentaries have been hitting the air, and this one might be my favorite.
In Texas, small-town high school football often means Six-Man Football – a form of the game that remains a mystery to a lot of people – including a lot of Texas. In fact, most people you meet have probably never been to a 6-Man game – even though 6-Man has been around for generations.
ESPN’s new film on the subject debuted this past Sunday, and it is fantastic. A true slice of Texana – right down to the story of the girl who signed up to play to save her school’s season.
Oh, and the narrator? Gary Busey. That alone makes it worth watching.
