Sinopsis:

Buffaloes and Beatniks is a historical, nostalgic narrative of the efforts of a group of young boys who set aside their quest for individual glory to conduct a superb effort to achieve team glory and became the first team in 50 years of Waycross High School football to be State Champs. It's the true stories woven together about what really happened when a new coaching staff employed "out of the box" techniques to inform, instruct, inspire and motivate a bunch of boys, who came from all over the City of Waycross to the Georgia AA State Championship. The story explains how the name of Buffaloes and Beatniks came to be applied due to the offensive speed, power and size along with defensive toughness, rebelliousness and pride. Together they were the "Unstoppable Force and the Immovable Object". The story comes straight from the "Buffalos' mouth. It tells how young men exposed to a pursuit of athletic excellence, become champions for their entire life. These ordinary young men learned how to do extraordinary things that were "taught on the practice field and learned in life". The story tells of "How to get a suntan and learn how to swim"; "How the State Championship was won two weeks before the first game was ever played"; what is "Thinking about the game"; why you will have "To live with them the rest of your life"; "Pay the price for failure"; "Vitamin shots"; and "it's a long way to go just to say hello". You will learn of the Promise that was made and the Promise that was kept. The story is relevant today. When the principles the 1960 Bulldogs who drilled, practiced and rehearsed, are applied today to your life, you too will be a Champion.
