This is the unforgettable, bittersweet portrait of a minor league football team in the heartland of America-Pottstown, Pa. The legendary Pottstown Firebirds, led by the zany quarterback Jim "King" Corcoran, coached by the crafty Dave DiFilippo, and owned by underwear tycoon Ed Gruber, would put together a championship season like no other. (For a television treatment of the Firebirds see "Lost Treasures of the NFL, Vol. 7)
