What was the name of that football (gridiron) documentary series, possibly shown on MTV, that featured an episode on a Hawaiian team living in one of the poorest parts of Hawaii?

I saw this on TV late on night when I first got cable, and foolishly didn't write down the name of it or anything. It was one of a series of documentaries about american football, with a focus on (I think) high school football. It followed one of the Hawaiian teams who were favorites to win the championship or something, and they got to play for the first time in front of a giant audience. It also showed the neighborhood where a majority of them lived, and some other stuff... I've been trying to find out what the series was called for hours now but to no avail. Anybody have any idea what I am talking about? If it wasn't MTV it may have been an ESPN documentary.

I couldn't find the documentary, but you might want to e-mail the people who run this blog about Pacific Islander players in high school, college, and pro football - I imagine they'd know.

It's called Timeless, it was on ESPN2, and it featured the Kahuku Red Raiders who play at Kahuku High School in Kahuku on the northern tip of O'ahu.

It's actually running on a channel called MojoHD right now - here's the show's website, and here's their online video player where you can watch it.

Actually, that video player just links to clips. Here are a bunch of longer Kahuku-related clips on YouTube.
