The 1987 Garner Senior High football team won the state title
A musical about a group of boys that captured the imagination of a small town and won the state football championship. Garner had a population of about 12,000, but had close to 10,000 fans in Charlotte for the title game against a team from the biggest city in the state. The country bumpkins, the Garner grits, took on the city slickers and changed a community in the process.
