Power, Passion and Glory: The Real Story of Texas Football Madness

The movie focuses on Celina High School during their run at history in the 2002 season. Pat Summerall narrates this masterful work by Ken Hechmann. These are the real people, the actual events and an unvarnished look at how small town high school football is played, won and lost in the Lone Star State.

Film Synopsis

       The release of “Friday Night Lights” has turned the nation’s attention to the incredible drama and emotion of high school football as played in the Lone Star State. But more and more of this attention is being directed away from the Hollywood film to the unscripted, unrehearsed, “un-Hollywood” version: “Power, Passion & Glory: The Real Story of Texas Football Madness.”
       Narrated by veteran sportscaster Pat Summerall, the documentary is the product of filmmaker Ken Heckmann’s quest to capture the grit, hysteria and heart-stopping tension of the real thing. Appropriately, he selected as his subject the Celina Bobcats, who became the winningest team in Texas history during their dramatic 2002 season, all of which Heckmann captured on camera. Celina had won 57 straight games and four consecutive state 2A championships heading into that campaign.
       What Heckmann didn’t know when the project began was that two extraordinary events would give his documentary an extra dose of drama.
       First, to everyone’s shock, Celina’s legendary head coach of 14 years, G. A. Moore, suddenly left to coach for the school’s archrival, Pilot Point, who they would later play in a key game. To this day, it’s not clear why he left. But when Moore’s key assistant, protégé and friend Butch Ford took his place, the stage was set for a riveting story. The game pitting their teams against one another is one of the unforgettable parts of the film.
       The plot thickened further when the governing body of Texas high school athletics bumped Celina up to the 3A division. Overnight, they became the smallest school in their division, playing against better teams from bigger schools.
      The result is the pulse-pounding story of a team, and a town, defending their cherished reputations as champions.
       After the close of this fateful season, Heckmann spent the following eighteen months turning miles of video into a tightly-wound, 110-minute documentary with enough twists, turns and excitement to fill several movies. Pat Summerall’s narration is complemented by original music from Dallas composer Chip Evans.
       Emerging as the star of the documentary is Celina’s new head coach Butch Ford. With his spiritual approach and characteristically “Texas” colloquialisms, Ford delivers a natural and unrehearsed tour-de-force. His pre-game and halftime speeches are highlights of the film.
       Power, Passion & Glory is a heart-stopping story of a season on the brink. Can Celina maintain their record-breaking winning streak, even with a change of coach and division? Will they win their fifth-straight state championship? The film builds in tension to an unforgettable ending even Hollywood could not have even dared to imagine.
