A federal court ruling in 1967 brought all-black St. Augustine High School into Louisiana’s all-white Catholic high school sports association. Newly appointed Head Football Coach Otis Washington would face relentless adversity in the years that followed — a playoff berth lost on a coin toss, discriminatory officiating, unfavorable rulings from the school board, and a championship game defeat — while cultivating an innovative offensive style of play still used today.

In this Crabcake, we hopped on the phone with Oyd Craddock who wrote, directed and produced the film. Oyd also played on that magical team that won the championship in 1975.  We talk about the film and what made him decide to tell this story. We discuss the racial biases and attacks endured..and the determination shown by a coach and a team.
