Square Zero Films Presents SCRUM, the Story of Coach Frank McKinney and the Heartwarming Underdog Journey of a National Championship College Rugby Team

Heartwarming Underdog Journey of National Championship College Rugby Team

LOS ANGELESOct. 6, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Square Zero Films presents SCRUM from award-winning director Thomas Morgan. The documentary follows Frank McKinney, one of the first Black college rugby coaches in the US. Frank faces institutional obstacles as he builds a rugby team from the ground up that defies expectations and breaks down racial and socio-economic barriers at a predominantly white Southern institution.

SCRUM captures Coach McKinney’s journey as he realizes his dream of bringing diversity to the game and opening doors for first-generation college students. Character and good grades are a prerequisite – rugby skills? Optional.

Steadfast in his devotion to his players, Coach McKinney’s personal journey parallels the team’s failures and successes as he navigates his own interpersonal relationships while working toward the championship game.

In a breakthrough approach in the world of streaming content, SCRUM will be available to stream on starting on October 6, 2021 for $12 per view. Various organizations from around the country will be able to use the film to generate revenue through their efforts. Square Zero Films will invite viewers to support partners like the NAACP, Under Armour Foundation, Play Rugby USA and several others as a means to earn money for their specific causes.  For viewers who support a specific organization, they can stream the film at a discounted rate of $10 per view.
