Editorial Reviews

4TH & GOAL is the epic tale of six young football players in their quest to join the most elite club in professional sports: the NFL. Shot over six years, we first meet DeQawn, Albert, Gibril, Tim, Randy, and Bret at the famed junior college football program at City College of San Francisco. We track their progress as they are recruited for top Division 1 college scholarships; they fan out across the country, each believing that he will be one of the chosen few who will be a "Sunday Player."

What their experience reveals is the true fate of millions of high school football players each year: only 1696 players can play on an NFL team and the cut-throat competition -- physical, intellectual, and emotional -- is what distinguishes one man's success from another man's failure. The bottleneck narrows as our characters reach the end of their college careers and the draft and recruitment process heats up. Pro-Day, Draft-Day, Training Camp -- they are all steps towards that moment that every football player dreams of. But injury, family problems, and the limits of one's abilities all conspire to some degree against each. Only one of our six young men will achieve his dream.

Who will make it and why? What their individual fates reveal is as much a prophetic tale of brotherhood, family and the harsh realities of growing up as it is about excelling on 100 yards of turf.

When it comes to sports related documentaries, the gold standard has got to be 1994's incredibly powerful "Hoop Dreams." Following two inner city Chicago kids for five years, the film saw the duo as they worked toward their goal of making it as professional basketball players. Sometimes harrowing, sometimes heartfelt--the film pushed past the subject of sport to be an important document about life in general. Following the same template is Nina Gilden Seavey's "4th & Goal." This earnest and honest film features five players (as well as one recent alumni) from the 2003 championship season at the famed City College of San Francisco. With the assistance of their esteemed coach George Rush, this talented bunch all had dreams up stepping up to Division One schools followed by an NFL career. But the odds aren't exactly in their favor in this intensely competitive arena. The film, with segments over the next six years, follows these eager athletes through their resultant triumphs and disappointments.

Anyone who loves football, college football in particular, should find much of interest in "4th and Goal." The film features much footage about training sessions, recruitment and key gameplay and is very good at establishing the process gone though to move to the next level of success. The players are well defined in their thinking--very few have back-up plans to their chosen (but hard to reach) aspirations. This is an especially vital topic in our current celebrity culture where everyone wants instant fame (whether in sports or entertainment) and banks on it, but aren't really building any alternate skill set in case they don't make it. The selected players are relatable and, oftentimes, their own worst enemies.

A must see. 7 years in the making and so worth the story it tells. Humor and tears. Laughter and disappointment. Heroes on and off the field. Great surprise ending. Loved the barbeque scene.

This is another one of these documentaries that young football players need to see. Just because you may have the talents does not necessarily equate to "instant stardom".
