Friday Night Lights
The Odessa Permian Panthers make it to the State Finals against Carter, a huge team. They get destroyed in the first half, have a memorable speech during halftime, and make a comeback in the second half. The quarterback, Mike Winchell, makes a last second dash to the endzone to tie the game, but alas, falls a yard short. They don't win, but they all go on with life. (However, Permian wins the State championship the following year)
Thanks, Abby B, Brian T, Lilia H and Joseph V!
