Viewers will not only watch as the Bucs chase their fourth state championship title in five years, but they will also get an inside look on how players balance the normal pressures of being high school seniors and dealing with personal relationships. In Hoover, football is not just a sport it�s a WAY OF LIFE so losing is never an option. Players face the pressures of demanding coaches and practices twice every day while trying to earn football scholarships to some of the country�s most respectable colleges.

Each of the eight episodes of �Two-A-Days� will culminate in a big game; but the drama off the field often affects what happens on the field.

Fans will have access to exclusive content with the cast on MTV.com and broadband network, MTV Overdrive (www.overdrive.mtv.com). The site will offer episode descriptions, tune-in information and cast bios and photos. Beginning August 23rd, each week the Overdrive "After Show" will offer exclusive cast interviews including �In The Huddle� -- a post-game analysis featuring the Coach and the team discussing the big game of the week.
