I am a proud graduate of Montour High School, and a Spartan for life. I was so excited when I heard that this show was being made. I live in South Carolina now and am far away from home, have been for several years. It was so cool seeing home on national TV. The show was well made and shed a good light on the community. I think that an outsider would've also enjoyed the show but for different reasons. Some problems with the show were the fact that these kids didn't play as hard as they should've. If I was on ESPN, I'd work my ass off to make the plays, and wouldn't make excuses every game. Coach Dick Butkus wasn't very supportive, not nearly as much as Ray Crockett, who he brought in to help out. All in all I really enjoyed the show despite the bitter losses. And am still proud to call myself a Spartan.
