Descriptions after the jump.

North Dallas Forty (1979) - This adaptation of the sort of biography book by Peter Gent (Cowboys WR). This story is all about the exploits of Phillip Elliott (Nick Nolte), who is often fueled by drugs and alcohol, and quarterback Mac Davis. It's non-traditional ending often sticks with fans of the sports genre.

Gridiron Gang (2006) - Dwayne Johnson (aka The Rock) teaches juvenile delinquents the importance of honor and responsibility through the magic prism of football. The kids learn discipline, and the Rock learns understanding, and then they have their big matchup.
