Continuity: When David is about to kick the 51 yard field goal in the championship game and his dad stands up, the camera pans back for a wide angle and the dad is the only person in that area. Then in a matter of seconds a man is right next to him asking if he needs help; this same man then magically disappears again and reappears deep within the stands to cheer for the field goal a few seconds later.See more »

J.T. Hawkins Jr.:Where'd you park it?
Grant Taylor:Right here!
J.T. Hawkins Jr.:You sure? 'Cause ain't no way it got stolen. Man, you couldn't pay nobody to steal your car!
Grant Taylor:Did the boys do something with it?
J.T. Hawkins Jr.:Hey, I don't know... hey, man, there's a note on this truck for you.
Grant Taylor:What does it say?
J.T. Hawkins Jr.:It says, "Grant Taylor, the impact you've made on our school means more to us than you'll ever know. The Lord has used you to meet a need in our lives. Now we want to meet a need in yours. You'll find the title of this new truck in your name. Please accept it as our way of saying thank you."
J.T. Hawkins Jr.:Uh uh! Somebody done gave you a truck?

A Movie for Football Fans, 26 July 2006
Author: rafda from United States

I saw a preview showing of this movie about a year ago. I am thrilled to see it is coming out. The story is an excellent story of life, as portrayed by a football coach and his team. Viewers will see a man come to grips with the problems of his life and inspire a football team that has lost its inspiration. Add to that great football action and excitement, and this is a movie to tell your friends about.

I happen to be a person of faith, thus when I see the movie I smile because I know exactly why this story is believable. When you see it, you will undoubtedly enjoy the story, and who knows maybe you also will smile!
