Go Tigers!
(DVD)

DIRECTED BY - Kenneth A. Carlson


In the blue collar Ohio town of Massillon, the most important thing is high school football, and the frenzy around home team the Tigers is, as one resident observes, like "a cult... a religion." Shot on high-definition video, former Massillon resident Kenneth Carlson's documentary follows the three stars of the 1999 team, co-captains Ellery Moore, Dave Irwin, and linebacker Danny Studer, as they deal with problems like personal injuries and the pressures of their economically depressed town's high expectations. As the Tigers lurch ahead through a winning 106th season, Massillon's school system is challenged by bankruptcy, threatening teachers, education, even the team itself.
