Possums is a 1998 American comedy-drama film directed by J. Max Burnett and starring Mac Davis, Cynthia Sikes, and Greg Coolidge. The film focuses on a small town football team, the Possums, which have not won a game in years. The story follows the team, led by their coach Mac (played by Mac Davis), as they try to break their losing streak and turn their season around.

Mac is a local high school coach who is determined to lead his team to victory. However, his plan changes when he is fired from his coaching position due to budget cuts. After a heartfelt goodbye to his team, Mac is brought back to reality by the nagging feeling that he has let them down. He decides to take matters into his own hands and become the football coach of a local team called the Possums.

The Possums are a disorganized group of players who have never won a game before. They are undisciplined and lack the motivation to train hard for their upcoming games. Furthermore, the team's players are ridiculed and bullied by the other high school students. Despite the hurdles, Mac decides to take on the Possums and lift them out of their losing streak.

Mac begins his coaching journey by recruiting a group of misfits who have been kicked off their respective high school teams. Among them are Swifty (played by Greg Coolidge), a scrappy and fast runner who loves to throw a good punch, and Irba (played by Cynthia Sikes), a single mother who is trying to find her place in the world. Mac also recruits his son, Mule (played by Kyle Logan), as the team's quarterback.

As the Possums gradually improve and win some games, they begin to attract the attention of the local community. With newfound support, the team eventually qualifies for the state championships. However, tragedy strikes when one of the players is killed in a car accident. The Possums must overcome their grief and rally together to finish the season.

Possums is a heartfelt comedy-drama that reminds us that sometimes the greatest victories come from the most unlikely places. The film uses football as a way to explore themes of hope, perseverance, and redemption. Its heartwarming message will inspire audiences of all ages to never give up on their dreams or the people they believe in.

Overall, Possums is a charming and uplifting movie that captures the spirit of small-town America. Its characters are lovable and relatable, and its story is both touching and inspiring. If you're looking for a feel-good movie that will warm your heart, then Possums is definitely worth a watch.
