An aimless young man who is scalping tickets, gambling and drinking, agrees to coach a Little League team from the Cabrini Green housing project in Chicago as a condition of getting a loan from a friend.
In the early 70s, Cathy Rush becomes the head basketball coach at a tiny, all-girls Catholic college. Though her team has no gym and no uniforms -- and the school itself is in danger of being sold -- Coach Rush looks to steer her girls to their first national championship.
An action-packed drama about a Christian high school football coach who uses his undying faith to battle the giants of fear and failure. In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage. What transpires is a dynamic story of the fight between faith and fear. Written by

It don't have to look pretty, it don't have to look smooth. It can look like a dying duck as long as it goes through the goal.

My husband & I were able to see the movie Facing the Giants in Denver at the CBA conference. I must say this was the Best movie I have seen in years. It gets you right from the start. you go from crying to cheering. The movie is packed full of family values and football. I thought "oh another football movie" I was wrong Facing the Giants is not like any other football movie I have ever seen. I came home totally on fire & excited about this movie coming out in Theaters. I have told all my friends & family about it. I have even told people I didn't even know about it. GO see the movie you wont be disappointed. Unless of course you like me don't have a theater in your area playing the movie. This makes me very sad. The movie is great. I cant say enough good about it with out giving anything away. We came out of the theater encouraged and happy. When is the last time you came out of a movie Encouraged & happy. So excited you wanted everyone you knew to go see it? My prayer now is that a Theatre near me will pick it up. Thank you.
