REPLAY has also released an inspiration video for "We Can Do It Now," featuring Common, Lupe Fiasco, Jennifer Hudson, and No I.D.

Gatorade created REPLAY to restage classic games that ended in controversy - offering athletes a second chance for redemption some 10-15 years later. Gatorade reunites the original teammates and provides them with an 8-week training and nutrition program so they can get back in peak shape and replay their game to settle the score once and for all.

Season III of REPLAY features two South Side Chicago high school basketball teams, the Bloom Township Trojans and the Brother Rice Crusaders. The two teams competed this fall to settle their 2000 super sectional game that decided who would go "downstate" to the Elite 8 and who would go home. The original game ended with a controversial call regarding the game clock, shrouding the final shot in controversy for a decade. A documentary sharing the journey of these athletes and their REPLAY game will be airing throughout the month of December on Fox Sports Net (check REPLAYtheSeries.com or Fox Sports Net for local listings).
