Meet the Falcons

Short | 01:55

With not much going on around town, the Falcons football team has time to practice. And practice makes perfect - or at least a championship team.

More About This show

This story takes place in Maine, but it's a tale that occurs throughout America as summer gives way to the first chill of fall. Two rival high schools from rival towns settle their differences on the football field. White collar vs. blue collar. Haves vs. have-nots. The game can crown only one victor, but the lessons it teaches about discipline, respect and brotherhood will produce multiple winners.
