a lot of the characters that we’ve grown to know over the last three seasons are now graduated so season 4 is somewhat of a reboot. a new school, new team, new characters. coach and his wife remain the same, but the environment has changed. these final two seasons give a different perspective on the impact of football on the community. the athletes are mostly lower class kids, a few of them have criminal records, etc. while these characters never “took” as much with me as the original cast did, they did have some moments. this season did have some of the toughest moments of the series. saracen’s father dying and tim going to jail were among them. it also featured some of coach’s toughest challenges in dealing with the day to day operations of getting a field ready, sporting a full team, etc.
overall a somewhat inconsistent season, but still a good one.Watched on TV
