Undefeated Undefeated

USA
Director: Daniel Lindsay

Set in Memphis, Undefeated chronicles the Manassas Tigers’ 2009 football season as they strive to win the first playoff game in the high school’s 110-year history. A perennial whipping boy, in recent decades Manassas had gone so far as to sell their home games to the highest bidder, but that all changed in the spring of 2004 when Bill Courtney volunteered to lend a hand. The football program began resurrecting itself and, in 2009, features the most talented team it has ever fielded.
