Massillon, Ohio - Where they live, breathe and eat football.

Welcome to Massilon, Ohio, where high school football is nothing short of religion. For the 33,000 people who live there, football is life- a veritable "cradle to the grave" experience that begins in the maternity ward where coaches make visits to scout future linebackers, and ends in a customized football casket emblazoned with the Tigers mascot.

A surprise hit in theaters across the country in 2001, Go Tigers! chronicles the 1999 high school football season f the Massillon Tigers. On the heels of a losing year, the Tigers risk losing football in Massillon altogether, as an upcoming vote on a new tax levy is the only thing that will prevent massive budget cuts and the elimination of the football program. With the vote clearly riding on the team's success, it is up to the three co-captains - quarterback Dave Irwin, linebacker Danny Studer and defensive end Ellery Moore - to ensure that an entire town's hopes and dreams come true. Just three days before the crucial vote is to take place, the Tigers face the biggest game of their lives against archrival McKinley.

In the spirit of such hit films as Remember The Titans and Hoop Dreams, accomplished filmmaker and Massillon native Kenneth A. Carlson brings us the real story behind America's hysterical obsession with sports, and for the first time lets us experience that same rush of adrenaline along with a real live team. With a standing room only crowd of screaming fans and a town's future at stake, Go Tigers! is an energetic and absorbing thrill ride not to be missed.
