Over the course of the summer, the film crew visited eight teams. They were:

2. Brophy Prep Broncos, Phoenix, Arizona
3. Arlington-Parkersburg Falcons, Parkersburg, Iowa
4. Maryland School for the Deaf Orioles, Frederick, Maryland
5. Cathedral Fighting Irish, Indianapolis, Indiana
6. E.E. Smith Golden Bulls, Fayetteville, North Carolina
7. Sunshine Tigers, Newbern, Alabama
8. Boys Ranch Roughriders, Boys Ranch, Texas
Here is what the program said in describing why the Big Piney Punchers was one of the teams selected to be highlighted: "The Line of Scrimmage chose the Big Piney Punchers of Big Piney, Wyoming as the final school in the search for the "Gutsiest Teams in America." Reason being, Big Piney is known as the "Ice Box of The Nation" due to its extreme cold temperatures."
