Based on the true story of the 2009 Abilene High football team, Brother's Keeper is in the final stages of filming and all of Abilene is invited to be in the movie.

While some of the movie was shot elsewhere, much of it will be shot this weekend - right here in Abilene. The producers behind this epic movie need your help to fill Shotwell Stadium.

You know how big Shotwell is, so we need thousands of people to show up. We live, eat, and breathe high school football here in Abilene, so this shouldn't be a tough feat to accomplish.

Grab all of your friends and family.

Here are the days/times that are needed:

  • Saturday, Feb 2: 7 a.m.-1 p.m.
  • Saturday, Feb 2: 2 p.m.-6 p.m.
  • Sunday, Feb 3: 7 a.m.-2 p.m.
