This movie, based on real life events, does a wonderful job of portraying the power and beauty of the human spirit. The movie allows you escape all of the negative aspects of professional sports and big-time collegiate athletics and reminds us of the truly positive effects of sport when taught in the proper perspective.
The movie also demonstrates the ever ending struggle between good and evil forces in our world and teaches us to fight through life even during some of its most challenging moments. A beautiful demonstration of American spirit and reinforces the strength of our nation and its values. This movie is about life and is much greater than just a high school football team.
