Da Haven Release Date Announced
Aug. 3, 2022
Canaan Productions, LLC is proud to announce the release of the Da Haven Documentary on Friday Aug. 26, 2022. Da Haven will be made available for purchase via the Canaan Productions website.
#DaHaven follows the journey of a powerhouse inner-city football team from Columbus, Ohio, as they tackle challenges on and off the field and display their drive and determination to obtain to the first (and only) state championship title their city has ever seen.
Through personal accounts and exciting stories from the 2004 Brookhaven Bearcats, Da Haven revisits the compelling and uncertain journey of the players, coaches, and community who experienced this unprecedented year in football history.
Da Haven, named after the legendary Columbus City Schools Brookhaven High School, produced some of the most incredible student-athletes and professional athletes the city has ever seen. Such as Terry Glenn, Anthony Thornton, Anthony Gwinn, June Henley, Knehemiah Bell, Maurice Hall, Jeff Cumberland, and Dominic Jones. The film captures the nineties through the two thousand where Brookhaven consistently defined and exemplified high school football in the state of Ohio.
After the 2004 historic championship win by the score of 42 to 21 over the Avon Lake Shoreman, Brookhaven High School, the jewel of Columbus City Schools closed its doors forever on May 29, 2014. Still to this day, leaving alumni and community members in disbelieve this storied legacy is no longer.
