Storyline

Sirr Parker, raised in tough South Central Los Angeles, was abandoned by his junkie mother and raised by his grandmother until Coach Griffin takes him under his wing at Locke High School. Meant to be an inspirational story, the former Texas A&M standout was signed as a 1998 undrafted rookie free agent by the San Diego Chargers and makes the practice squad but was waived and signed by two more teams before he finally switched positions and stuck with the Cincinnati Bengals for the last three games of the 2000 season. He was then released for a very minor violation of team off-season rules regarding place of residence. Written by sandlot3

MCD As Good Here As Green Mile.
5 September 2005 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I recently caught this film on DVD. I was so impressed with the tone of this film... In that I mean that a film like this could have gone overboard, or become melodramatic at any point, but it never did. It handled the relationships very truthfully, the dialogue was solid, real and never forced. Kente Scott and Michael Clarke Duncan were amazing together. The two perfectly played off one another as coach and student forming a bond that was paternal by the end of the film. Each actor gave the other the room to shine and never gave a false moment. The supporting cast was also terrific, especially the comic relief of Martin Villafana and Alonso Oyarzun who seamlessly transitioned from comedy to drama. Check this movie out... It's well worth it.
