Ohio Football: The Season


OPEN ON: FOOTBALL STADIUM

The stadium is very big, but empty. No one is there. It's empty. No game is going on at the time.

A voice comes over the silence as we pan the empty stadium. "O H I O" is painted in the end zone's. The background color green grass, the letter's done in white.

VOICE OVER: He took a program from sub par, to the highest level of exposure.

Before our eyes the stadium goes from empty to sold out, not an empty seat. The sidelines are full, too. Ohio on the left, another team on the right. The fans are yelling and screaming as Ohio takes the field.

CUT TO: LOCKER ROOM

Coach JON BURLESON'S face is red, he's yelling at the top of his lungs.

Burleson: I can't play for you!!! If we lose this game, IT'S OVER!

CUT TO: PRACTICE FIELD

Coach Burleson is yelling for his team to run faster as they are going through drills.

CUT TO: DORM ROOM

Running back DEZ SPATAZZA is in front of the camera with roommate MICHAEL JACKSON. Dez is holding up two fingers and shaking them in our face like a rap star.

Dez: This is Ohio Football.

Michael: Believe that.

CUT TO: FLASH OF SHOTS.

A running back being hit by an Ohio player, the running back's helmet flies off his head.

The Ohio quarterback dropping back to throw a pass, he lets it fire and hits a man in the end zone for a touchdown.

A bus pulling up to a college dorm to be greeted by hundreds of screaming fans dressed in Green and white, yelling "OHIO ROCKS" over and over as the players from the bus make their way off of it.

The images get faster and faster and make a blurring sound as we watch them. Images of players on the sideline's going wild, tackles being made, coaches yelling, players celebrating in the middle of the field.

The sound and the images stop. Darkness takes over.

We hear the voice of Ohio starting quarterback REGGIE RAMBO.

Reggie (V.O.) We start at #10, if we finish anything less than number one, we failed.

Coach Burleson's voice takes over.

Burleson For some of you, you'll never step onto another football field. Make sure you make it count.

The ESPN logos appear.

As we fade back to the stadium full of people OHIO FOOTBALL: THE SEASON appears on the screen. It fades away then "COMING SOON ON ESPN" appears.

Coming Soon
