Football Town: Barrow, Alaska

Football Town: Barrow, Alaska is an eight-episode cinematic docu-series that will follow the incredible journey of the Barrow High School Whalers, who live at the northernmost point in the United States, as they attempt to win the state championship for the first time in school history. Following the premiere episode on September 22, Football Town: Barrow, Alaska will air Tuesdays at 8:30 PM ET on NFL Network, with a special encore presentation of each episode every Thursday following the Thursday Night Football postgame show.

320 miles north of the Arctic Circle, the Barrow High School Whalers play on a blue turf football field located on a narrow peninsula between the Arctic Ocean and a frozen lagoon. Despite never having experienced the Friday night lights of the lower 48 states, the Barrow High School team lives for football. Over the past 10 years in Barrow, football has been something for the small Native American community of 4,000 people to rally around and believe in. With no highway roads in or out of Barrow — and with the closest opponent 500 miles away — the team must fly to every away game.
