This solid series follows the coaches and players of the Alcoa High School Tornadoes as they try to win their 19th state championship. It follows the traditional formula of the franchise by following the team as they meet with coaches and academic counselors, practice, and of course, play against their rivals. Some of the athletes' families are also featured. Meanwhile, like its sister shows, 4th & Forever: Alcoa also attempts to create a cultural connection between the team and its community by highlighting the team's athletic legacy with Alcoa’s blue collar history, and the diverse culture of the aluminum smelting plant around which the town built there a hundred years ago. Nonetheless, most of the focus is on how the Tornadoes play the game, which is what will make it appealing to football fans.
