Storyline

Sirr Parker, raised in tough South Central Los Angeles, was abandoned by his junkie mother and raised by his grandmother until Coach Griffin takes him under his wing at Locke High School. Meant to be an inspirational story, the former Texas A&M standout was signed as a 1998 undrafted rookie free agent by the San Diego Chargers and makes the practice squad but was waived and signed by two more teams before he finally switched positions and stuck with the Cincinnati Bengals for the last three games of the 2000 season. He was then released for a very minor violation of team off-season rules regarding place of residence. Written by sandlot3

not very memorable
2 June 2004 | by rockinghorseSee all my reviews

I enjoyed Michael Clarke Duncan in this, but I like him in anything.

This story, true though it may be, could just as easily have been about any other elite athlete. There are very few who do not come from the same place. A major difference, I guess, is that Sirr Parker dropped out of the NFL almost immediately. I don't know whether he was injured or just not good enough. A football player has got to be pretty weak not to last with the Cincinnatti Bengals. Maybe he'll ressurrect as Tommy Maddux did briefly after a long and obscure career in the arena league.

The actress who played Sirr's mother looked more likely to be his girlfriend, but maybe she was 13 when he was born. It happens.
