This solid sports docu, which is narrated by actor Sean Boyce Johnson, follows two champion Florida teams as they each play for state titles, and prepare to face off in a traditional game. It highlights some of the notable players who have natural talent, but still need to mature and evolve if they want to win games and attract the attention of college scouts. The day-to-day challenges some the players face, including coping with serious family issues, and not being able to immediately afford medical care when they are injured, are also noted.

Watching the coaches struggle to build up their teams, and the players adjusting to their coach's tough and structured NFL-style practices, will appeal to football fans. So will the scenes from the football games each team plays throughout the season. But while there are some introspective moments, 4th & Forever: Muck City is really about showcasing a community in which football is not only a local tradition, but a sport that offers opportunities for generations of young men to build a better future.
