The program showcases the team’s journey to the 2015 8A state football championship, with an all-access look at how the Flanagan Falcons overcame pre-game nerves and how the team’s head coach, Devin Bush, felt about the Falcons' chances the night before the title game on December 12, 2015, in Orlando.

“Winning the 8A state football championship has been an amazing experience for our entire school community,” said Flanagan High School Principal Michelle Kefford. “It’s incredible that the journey to this success has been chronicled and captured through this film. We are beyond excited to not only share this unforgettable journey, but to relive it through this film.”

The Dirty Bird Nation: All Access with the Flanagan Falcons documentary will also be broadcast during BECON- TV’s Sports Blitz each Wednesday, at 8 p.m., February 3 – March 2, 2016.
