EXTRA EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT Get ready to experience the excitement of a perfect high school football season in 1960 in a small town. In the city of Homestead, a former sports editor is asked to come out of retirement to once again write for the Heritage News about the best sports team in the history of their town.
