Storyline

Freddie brings a fight to the game that ultimately gets him noticed--by none other than legendary University of Texas coach Darrell Royal (Aaron Eckhart). Awarded a scholarship and a chance to play for the Longhorns, Freddie sets off to Austin with his loving high school sweetheart, Linda (Sarah Bolger), determined to make the team. Alongside his old teammate Bobby Mitchell (Rett Terrell) and new pal James Street (Juston Street), Freddie is put through the paces of a grueling practice schedule. The boys' camaraderie off the field translates into solid playing on it, and they rise up the depth charts, giving the Longhorns a real chance to improve upon their mediocre record.

Goofs

In the Arkansas game, Texas scores a TD to make the score 14-6. When Texas decides to go for 2, the announcer erroneously says this is dangerous, as a miss would make it a '2 possession game'. At 14-6, following a failed 2 point conversion, it is still a 1 possession game. See more »

harsh critic who loved it
19 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

I was worried about this film being worth a darn. My father is depicted by Aaron Eckhart. Well, it turned out much better than I ever could have asked for. I've seen people try to make a movie out of this story for decades, so I was surprised that it got finished... and released!

Well, you may not cry out loud, guys. But I guarantee you will get chills and a lump in your throat.

Sure, it's got a lot of football, but GIRLS, you will love this character played by Finn Wittrock. Then you will cry.

You are at the cinema-plex. You aren't sure what to see.... PICK THIS ONE.
