In the fall of 1988 a Texas high school fielded the football team that many consider the greatest ever, yet chances are good you have never heard their story. What Carter Lost is not about the team immortalized in Friday Night Lights — it’s about the team that beat them. It’s about the year Dallas Carter dominated Texas high school football, never losing a game, but walked away with little more than an asterisk in the state’s history books. It’s about the legal battles that accompanied every Carter playoff game, the string of inexplicable crimes that forever altered six players’ futures, and the community that rallied to support its team, only to find itself tarred with scandal.

In the tradition of the best ESPN 30 for 30 documentary features, What Carter Lost is a story about the intersection of forces bigger than any game... except for football in Texas.
