Director - Jeff Zimbalist and Michael Zimbalist (Directors of The Two Escobars)
Length - 102 minutes without commercials (2 hours with)
Installment - #58 of 30 for 30/ESPN Films series
Most Similar To - Unguarded, The Marinovich Project
Grade - Right outside the Top 10.
Note - I am an Ohio State grad and was actually a student during the years featured in the film but have made an attempt to remove any personal feelings from this review.
Review - I was eager to get my hands on Youngstown Boys. Part of that was due to the fact that I was a sophomore at Ohio State during the famed 2002 National Championship season that was in large part fueled by the efforts of Maurice Clarett. But part of my anticipation was due to the fact that the Zimbalist brothers hit a home run in their previous 30 for 30 effort (The Two Escobars) and ESPN has had four strong showings in airing a 30 for 30/ESPN Film after the Heisman ceremony.no comments
