Where two become eight

60 miles outside of Kansas City, Mo. are two small cities' with populations less than 700 people. Norborne and Hardin Mo. are two farming communities that thrive on football. The two cities' high schools were bitter rivals until 2015 when they were forced to combine if they wanted to continue playing football. The once rival high schools now play eight-man football together. This micro doc focuses on the brotherhood that is formed on the football field, the impact it has on their cities and the former rivalry. I worked as the lead videographer and director for this project. It was published by the Columbia Missourian on December 9, 2021.
