A documentary chronicling the University of Miami football program's rise from turmoil and probation to winning its 5th National Title.
THE U RELOADED. Whether you're a die-hard fan of the University of Miami Hurricanes or just enjoy a good college football game every now and then, you must see this documentary as it tells the story of a program in some of its darkest days following sanctions from the NCAA, coaching changes, the gruesome murder of one of the team's star players, and lack of scholarship players and talent, to its rise as champions of the 2001 BCS Championship and arguably the greatest college football team of all-time.
THIS FILM IS PRODUCED BY MEMBER OF THE FOOTBALL PROGRAM DURING THAT PERIOD.
Producer and Director Najeh Davenport played for the University of Miami from 1997-2001. He was there - saw, felt and experienced the program during its darkest days of a 5-6 season and 47-0 loss to Florida State to its rise defeating the Gators and Seminoles in 2000 and The U's 5th National Championship in 2001. As an insider, he knows first-hand what was going on in those days and viewers will appreciate his way of telling the story that includes intimate details of the program at the time.
WE HAVE ALREADY INTERVIEWED MANY OF THE STARS OF THE 2001 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP TEAM.
Clinton Portis, Jeremy Shockey, Jarrett Payton, Ken Dorsey, Vernon Carey, Damione Lewis, Santana Moss, Jonathan Vilma, Bryant McKinnie - not only are these the names of former and current NFL stars, but these are individuals we have ALREADY interviewed for this documentary, among many others. We have compiled our own interview footage of over 20 players and coaches including Butch Davis and Larry Coker and are currently in the process of interviewing many more key figures. You will learn directly from the stars themselves of their experiences at the University of Miami and what it took to be the best. You will hear stories YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD BEFORE.
BEHIND THE SCENES FOOTAGE NO ONE HAS EVER SEEN BEFORE.
Unless you were there in 1997-2001, you HAVE NOT seen this footage. From the pre-game in the locker room to practices, workouts, sideline footage during games of coaches instructing players, to times hanging out under "the tree." What's "the tree"? If you were a UM Football player you'd know. For those who don't know, watch this documentary and find out! We have hours of footage of some of the most intense workouts, practices, and meetings that go far beyond your imagination.

Right now we are using stock music. We want to give you the best possible music to accompany this documentary and bring out the emotions of the interviews and highlights. We also want to produce an original soundtrack and song for the documentary. Think... "We Ballin Boys"
We want this documentary to POP. We want to provide you with newspaper clippings, photos, graphics that will enhance the experience. We need the funding to help us achieve this. We deliver nothing but top-notch talent as producers of this documentary but we face limited resources that pose challenges to its final production.
Official game highlights... the ones you see on TV, we need to pay for those. Sixty dollars per second to be exact. To give you the best experience - strolling down memory lane and remembering all the big plays of the past - we need funds to pay for these highlights.
We want to bring you even BIGGER stars to the documentary. Because some players are still in the NFL or don't live in South Florida, we need funding to pay for travel expenses to accomplish these few, final interviews.
Once we get the funding for these things, we know what to do with them...deliver to you the finest documentary of its time - The U Reloaded.
The more funding we get the better an experience we can give you, so don't stop donating!
