HBO launched its full trailer for BS HIGH, the brand new documentary on the 2021 Bishop Sycamore highschool soccer debacle, and it already appears like a must-watch for anybody who even confirmed a passing curiosity in one in all sports activities’ weirdest tales of the final decade.
In case you don’t know, or forgot what occurred, a small highschool known as “Bishop Sycamore” enticed gamers to their program with the promise of main faculty publicity, promoting the dream that they’d go on to play at Alabama and different excessive profile packages. It turned out the college, and all the pieces concerned with it was utterly faux — with no courses, no academics, and a soccer program that shouldn’t have even existed.
The crew faked its manner all the way in which to ESPN, the place a televised recreation in opposition to IMG Academy triggered it to all come crashing down. Within the wake of that recreation individuals started to dig deeper into the college, and that’s when the depth of this fraud was revealed.
Directed by Tavon Free (38 On the Backyard) the documentary is filled with unique interviews with the gamers who had been exploited, the coaches who tricked them, and people inside the highschool athletics system that allowed this to occur.
BS HIGH debuts on MAX on August 23.
