In the vein of Friday Night Lights and The Blind Side, UNDERDOGS is based on inspirational true events of a high school football team no one expected to succeed. In small town America, high-school football provides its players a possible ticket to a bigger world and the community a source of pride. Filmed in Canton, Ohio, the Knights are a lousy team who've become a target for jokes. When down on his luck Coach DeAntonio (D.B. Sweeney) arrives, he pushes the boys to see their potential, while a hometown bartender (Natalie Imbruglia) tries to reopen his guarded heart. When quarterback Bobby Burkett (Logan Huffman) falls in love with a cheerleader (Maddie Hasson) from a rival team, it enrages their star John Handon (Charlie Carver). Meanwhile, Bobby's father (William Mapother) is battling Handon's dad (Richard Portnow), whose crooked corporation is suing him over his own invention. Director Doug Dearth's heartwarming and rabble-rousing crowd pleaser will be sure to have viewers cheering!
