Based in Memphis, Tennessee, the Manassas Tigers are an underfunded high school team, comprised of players from underprivileged backgrounds. Despite having failed to win a playoff game since their founding in 1899, the arrival of volunteer coach Bill Courtney in 2004 results in a change in fortunes, and in 2009 – led by their star player O.C. Brown – they have an opportunity to break their historic losing streak.
