Just as the film Hoosiers captured the poignant spirit of Indiana high schoolbasketball, The Road to Paradise tells the story of an unlikely and unexpectedfootball champion - an unproven team without a football pedigree.
Considered to be a team that could never seriously contend with the powerhouseschools from northern Indiana, the underdog 1982 Castle Knights of the tinysouthern Indiana town of Paradise capped off a magical undefeated season witha championship that the experts in such matters said was impossible.
The Road to Paradise is the story of that season and high school football in Indiana. It's the story of all that happened before and all that would happen after for a team, a school and a community at a crossroads. It's not so much a story about winning, but about refusing to lose. It's the recipe of how champions are made.
