Well, it's that time of the year...football season. And out on dvd now is the informative but entertaining documentary 4TH & Goal. The film follows the journey of six young men aiming to reach the NFL and is described as The Blindside meets Hoop Dreams.
Shot over six years..."4TH & GOAL tells the stories of DeQawn, Albert, Gibril, Tim, Randy, and Bret, all standouts at a respected junior college football program. Each of the young men are recruited for top Division 1 college scholarships. As they fan out across the country to the nation’s best college football teams, each carries with him the belief that he will be one of the chosen few who will someday be a 'Sunday Player' in the NFL."
