Podcast: Football Movie Series
Football season is among us and what a better time to discuss some of the better football movies that are out there that we’ve seen and a few we haven’t. In this series, we’re going to discuss Remember the Titans, Brian’s Song, Any Given Sunday, Rudy and Friday Night Lights.

Friday Night Lights, 2004
Friday Night Lights is an amazing film that tells us the story of a high school football team in Texas and the relationships that made that team what it was. Click here to read the full review.
Listen to our review of Friday Night Lights below.
Remember the Titans is certainly the best football movie ever. I was surprised to not see Varsity Blues on this list…which was pretty much a camera crew following me around during my high school football experience.
Haha nyce. Well we wanted to do a good mix of movies we liked and some we hadn’t seen. Scott hadn’t seen Rudy and Nate hadn’t seen Any Given Sunday. And none of us had seen Brian’s Song so it was a good chance for us to see them.
