Detailing the hardships and perseverance of Coach and his team to achieve their goals together.

Being a sports fan can be a tough task because people are so connected to the players on the team. If you have followed one sport your entire life or if you’ve followed one team specifically, their wins and losses become your own. Many people get deeply invested in these players’ lives, and High School football brings out the more emotional side of everyone. In Algiers, America: The Relentless Pursuit, one coach is there to mold the students on the team into great players but, more importantly, wonderful people.

In this TV mini-series, Coach Brice Brown and the Edna Karr Cougars go on a journey together to fulfill their dreams, chase their future, and win their fifth state championship in six seasons.

This five-part documentary follows the team at Edna Karr and how they struggled with many things. Being in high school is challenging on its own, but adding high school football to the already strenuous life can be daunting. People take pride in a community that helps their kids, and that’s exactly what this docu-series shows.

It’s an in-depth look into the lives of this community, which has suffered in other avenues, only for them to come together as a team and overcome some pretty difficult times. As long as they all come together and fight for what they believe in and, more importantly, win together, they will all have a brighter future.

When a Coach like Brice Brown takes a team of high school students under his wing, it’s something special. He knows the gravity of guiding these teenagers and being that father figure for them. To be a Coach, you must have heart and compassion for your players, which is why this is so wonderful to watch.

The documentary series is directed and produced by Jackson Fager, and it truly shows the hardships of being in high school and wanting to form a path for the rest of your life. When you watch something like this, you don’t realize how much pressure high school students are under.

They have more responsibility, but it’s almost too much considering what they do have to go through. They have to maintain a social life, get a proper education, and join extracurricular activities to apply for university.

All of this can be achieved, but one will always take precedence over the other. It’s hard for teenagers to push this hard at such a young age when they have decades of their lives to work. It’s the social conditioning that puts these deadlines in the minds of young students that terrifies them in the end.

Yet, when you have Coaches like Brice Brown, he helps his students and puts everything in perspective for them.
