Storyline

In the weeks after Hurricane Katrina, the tiny town of LaPlace was overrun with thousands of displaced New Orleans residents. Their already bursting-at-the-seams high school, East St. John, took in over 450 new students. Twenty of them were football players. In order to make them feel more welcome, the coach declared all positions were open (even those help by ESJ seniors). For some, that meant the opportunity to play the sport they lived for, but for others, it put their scholarship chances (for many, their only chance at a college education) in jeopardy. But rather than fight or turn bitter, these young men banded together in the face of tragedy to create a team. Written by Variance Films

Showed our strength!!!!
21 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I know it's hard to think of going to another Katrina theme film, but this one is a must see. I enjoyed it because it showed our strength. All of us in the New Orleans area had to make quick hard decisions. I applaud the Coaches of East St John for being a strong role models for all these students. That tragic time in our lives, we needed good leaders to take us under their wings. Coach Doe was born to do that. He is not just a coach on the field, but a life coach too. I hope parents bring their children to see this movie. We all had to deal with Katrina in different ways and this is just another part of that huge story. So, it you ready to see another Katrina story, go see this one. Ziggy :)
