undefeated: deleted scenes

In the editing process I always end up cutting details and scenes, sometimes some of my favorite stuff. With Undefeated, I wound up with even more deleted material than usual. I think it’s mainly because there are so many amazing stories about the early days of Carlisle football. I used a lot of these stories, but had to cut some too, so that we wouldn’t lose touch with Jim Thorpe, who wasn’t at Carlisle yet. Anyway, I saved all the stories, and was able to post some of my favorites on various websites:
