A remnant of dedicated fans joined in from the stands and surrounding grounds... Those left were there because they had to stay––not because they wanted to. 'Always the loser, never the champ,' Nick mumbled, the scuffed helmet still covering his face. A clump of grass from the final tackle still clung to the bars on the facemask. He kept the headgear well-secured to shroud his watery eyes, still glassy from the result of the night's battle. Looking around, he noticed at least ten others still keeping their helmets on.For thirty nine years, the phrase 'always a loser' echoed in the halls of not only the North Adams football team, but the entire Decatur community. Prognosticators reviewing this year's team with little talent and less size all said the Braves would add one more notch to their dismal history. For an entire city and a team of factory workers facing their own losses, the odds for success were even longer. 'Not this year' according to head football coach Tony Glandorf. 'No is not an answer,' four workers proclaimed. 'We will not fail,' the city's Mayor shouted out. As a player, two teams, and an entire city try to carry on in the face of continual adversity, can they find a way to 'run to the green'?Always a Loser, Forever a Championis inspired by true stories.
