‘They Sleep On Us’ follows team’s journey to 2019 NJCAA National Championship Game
SCRANTON, Pa. – “Odds are we’ll never be in a national championship game again.”
Longtime Lackawanna College Head Football Coach Mark Duda knew how special it was to reach the 2019 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) championship game in Pittsburg, Kan.
The sentiment was captured in a behind-the-scenes interview that’s now part of a feature-length documentary on the team’s historic season. “They Sleep On Us,” an independent film by Christopher J. Hughes, will premiere on Friday, Oct. 28, at 7 p.m. in the Peoples Security Bank Theater, Angeli Hall, 501 Vine St., Scranton, as part of Lackawanna College’s 2022 homecoming events. A $5 suggested donation at the door will benefit the College’s athletics programs.
