Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this sports drama -- like the movie it's based on -- centers on the coach and players of an elite high school football team in small-town Texas. There's constant tension between the community's desire to win games and the coach's goal of helping his players understand the inner strength they need to truly be winners. Racial tensions, underage drinking, and sexual tension are prevalent, and some of the football scenes can get pretty intense. Other mature issues include infidelity, abusive relationships, divorce, going to war, and more.

Sexual Content

Some hugging, kissing, and making out, as well as strong innuendo. Teens are seen in bed together. One high school kid sleeps with his 30-something neighbor and also his best friend's girlfriend. A girl cheats on her boyfriend. Some lingerie/underwear shots. Dating, relationships, and sex (including virginity) are discussed.

Violence

The games are rough, and some of the injuries are very serious. Some arguing, pushing, and shoving between feuding teammates. One storyline deals with sexual assault, another with murder. Some abusive relationships.

Language

Relatively mild: "Damn," "hell," etc. Occasional racial epithets, like "cracker."

Social Behavior

There's a strong focus on playing from the heart as well as playing to win. Respect for teammates, family, and community are stressed. Racial tension is also a theme here. Prayers are both seen and heard throughout show.

Consumerism

Restaurant logos, such as Applebee's, are distantly visible. Sports drink bottles are visible, but no logos.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Underage drinking (often with the intention of getting drunk); one player is hung over on several occasions.
