Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): In the State Championship game, when one of the Permian "Mojo" Panther players makes an interception the commentator says "He returns it inside the Mojo 5." The "Mojo 5" would have actually been the opposite side of the field. He should have said inside the Carter 5.
  • There are only two title cards at the beginning of the movie. The first is "The following story is based on the 1988 West Texas football season." The second is the movie title. The cast and crew are not shown until the end of the movie.
  • Frustrated with the authenticity of some actors playing assistant coaches, director Peter Berg turned to actual Permian High School coaches to deliver some lines during game sequences.
  • Movie Goof (anachronisms): When Boobie is hurt, one of the fans standing behind L.V. in the stands is wearing a cap and jacket with a Texas Christian University logo that wasn't in use in 1988.
