| Documentary of one Football Crazy town
Middle America is crazy about football. There is nothing quite so American as a small town turning out on Friday night to support its high school football team. Each year the faces change although the names are recycled as brothers and sons and cousins fill jerseys that their relatives wore in earlier years. To some degree this is normal for mid-America but Masslin Ohio takes it to another level entirely.

Go Tigers! is a documentary about this town and its overpowering passion for high school football. The portraits are honest and accurate and as one who grew up in a small midwestern town, I thoroughly enjoyed seeing these folks, so much like the folks in the town where I grew up.

The film gives you a brief historical perspective and an introduction to a few of the town's more colorful characters before introducing you to this year's three co-captains and then traces one season from the practices before the opening game to the game with the archrivals across the county. Thrown into the mix of football and high school personalities is a budgetary problem and the very doubtful passage of the next school budget levy.
