This year The Line of Scrimmage is showcasing "The Gutsiest High School Football Teams in America". Brophy Prep was chosen because of it’s ability to deal with extreme heat. They also have a weekly ceremony where the team pledges individual commitments during the game that week.

The spirit of high school football will once again be shining in Prime Time as Toyota's The Line of Scrimmage returns to NBC this year as part of the Sunday Night Football Halftime Show.

This year's The Line of Scrimmage will feature some of the gutsiest high football teams in the country in 45-second documentary shorts. The Line of Scrimmage travels around the country is a Toyota Tundra profiling eight teams. Some of the stories this year will be...a team that endures brutal weather conditions, one that plays only away-games because it doesn’t have a home field and a team that remains extremely focused despite having parents deployed in Iraq.

This is the third year of The Line of Scrimmage, and it all begins tonight at the halftime of the Steelers/Browns game on NBC with the first part of the Brophy Prep Broncos from Phoenix, Arizona. Other schools that will be featured are: Aplington-Parkersburg Falcons (Parkersburg, IA), Maryland School for the Deaf (Frederick, MD), Cathedral Fighting Irish (Indianapolis, IN), Smith Golden Bulls (Fayetteville, NC), Sunshine Tigers (Newbern, AL) and the Big Piney Punchers (Big Piney WY).
