Ben Johnson is great!
13 December 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was made in the small town of Woodland California at our High School Football field. The story line was great and even though I was 13 at the time this was filmed, I believe they got their point across. This was a great experience to be a part of the crowd, and to be behind the scenes to see just how a movie is made. It was privilege to sit next to Ben Johnson, who is a wonderful person and explained to us how we needed to watch the game as if this were real and to not watch the camera! He was even very gracious in giving out his autograph and taking a picture with us. They had door prizes in which my sister won a Danny Thomas record and my Mom won the grand prize of a trip for 2 to Las Vegas for 3 days and 2 nights to see Danny Thomas perform live.
