Hoosiers tells the true story of a group of underdogs who become champions. Set in the 1950s, Hoosiers is about a hard-luck, unemployed college basketball coach (Gene Hackman) who gets a chance to coach a small-town Indiana high-school basketball team. Facing resentment from the community and the team itself, Hackman manages to inspire his young athletes, leading them to the state championship with the help of the assistant coach (Dennis Hopper), who happens to be a recovering alcoholic.

Small town America

Hoosiers is a wonderful story about a new basketball coach at Hickory High School who gets off on the wrong foot with the team, the team's supporters, school administration and the townspeople. But, he gave a little and they gave a little and when the team started to win, everyone in town followed the team all the way to the 1951 Indiana state high school basketball championship. A real tear jerker.
