The film will showcase a team that faces a life challenge but overcomes it each week while competing against several high schools throughout Texas. Even though the whole team and coaching staff may be deaf, they still have a winning tradition that dates years back.

Joining Broadway on the documentary will be Director of Photography Michael Lukasjewskyj, a 7-time Emmy award winner. Production for the film will begin in April and will continue through the fall of 2016, with a release date in 2017.
