Editorial Reviews

For 34 years, the Brandon High School wrestling team went undefeated. Its 439-match winning streak was the all-time national record for most consecutive wins by any school sports teams. Team members trained for years to earn a coveted spot, knowing the pride and prestige of being a Brandon wrestler. In 2008, "The Streak" came to a stunning and dramatic end. Brandon High's 2007-2008 season is at the center of this riveting film, chronicling three decades of ordinary high school athletes pursuing extraordinary accomplishments.

Format: DVD-R
8 of my family members (half of whom were wrestlers) watched this yesterday (Christmas Day). Everyone was glued to the end. The video gets inside the most successful high school wrestling program in history, showing clips from practices, matches, training camps, and even the local youth wrestling program headed by the same head coach. It is shot like a mainstream sports documentary, so it's gripping even to people who don't like wrestling. This documentary helps viewers understand why good wrestlers train twice a day (almost) every day and then go without food or water for 24 hours prior to each match: Not for money or a better future, but simply to win. More than anything else, this video conveys the internal drive that makes dedicated wrestlers push themselves further than most people consider reasonable or logical.

From a wrestler's perspective: As a former wrestler who has "normal workouts" at the gym, this video made me remember what it felt like to be truly hungry for victory. It made me think about the 2 mile run I had earlier in the day and wonder how I'd gotten so soft over the years. It drove me to get back on the mat, where I spent some time this morning and remembered, "this is A LOT harder than running." I highly recommend this documentary if you're a former wrestler who wants the internal drive to get back into the condition you were once in, or if you just want to see a well-shot documentary about a group of guys who work very hard and whose success has been nothing short of historical.

Availability: This item is unavailable on Amazon at the time this review was written. I watched it yesterday via the internet store on X-Box 360. It may be available through other electronic databases. If someone has it, an upload would be much appreciated.

this is a must see and a must own. a great real life story of courage, work ethic, perserverence, and never giving up despite the pressure of huge expectations and heartbreaking loss.
this is a great documentary on what it takes to be a champion and to rebound from adversity to be the best.
get this one. you won't be disappointed.

Bought this movie for my husband who was a wrestler in highschool and college in Texas. We both enjoyed this movie very much! Now he is the highschool head wrestling coach and he had his team watch this film during his wrestling period while standardized testing was going on for lower grade levels...anyways the kids loved it too. It really displayed how serious & tough wrestling is as a sport that doesn't get much recognition in Texas (it's all about football down here) and to show his kids new to the sport what they can be up against when they hit big tournaments, regionals and even state. Point is...great wrestling film for anyone who loves and respects the sport!

I like this. As a fan of wrestling, I see wrestling as a play for real life. Sometime we win, other times we don't but losing is not failing, it is only a stepping stone with winning to understand how to have success.

This documentary shows how to compete to deal with pressure and defeat.

Great movie for any wrestling enthusiasts. It has inspired our 13-year old to further dedicate himself to the sport. So few wrestling movies exist, we try to get our hands on all of them and this was definately a great documentary.

Very well done dvd. It shows the hard work wrestlers put in and that by working hard you can acheive great things for even long periods of time. It also shows though that you can not always be top dog/undefeated, There will come a day that you will lose and you will have to pick yourself back up and push on even after a defeat. I espeically liked the coaches methods/ his attitude towards his wrestlers, their accomplishments, and also how he reacted when the streak was finaly broke.

Fantastic documentary on highschool wrestling. There is a reason why some coaches and programs succeed year in and year out and the fill crew does an awesome job capturing the spirit of an awesome coach.
