Eric and Katie
Katie and Eric became fast friends at Northwest where, like many students, they enjoyed early morning breakfasts at Gray's Truck Stop, barbecues out at Mozingo, studying for finals with no power during the 2008 Maryville ice storm, and of course the Saturday morning Bearcat football games.

After learning the news of the untimely and sudden passing of Coach Bostwick, Katie and Eric felt a pull to tell the story of the 2011 Bearcat Football team. It is the tradition, heart, and power of the Northwest family that they hope to share with the viewer.

This is the first documentary created under Eric and Katie's production company, Mile Marker 8 Productions, LLC. Katie and Eric formed MM8 Productions in 2009 to tell stories just like this one.
