The quality and standard of your life will not be determined by how well you play football, but by how well you confront adversity. Attitude!

User Reviews

only inches away from a touchdown
10 October 2012 | by user-498-12672See all my reviews

Scott Murphy started his football career in high school. He became varsity quarterback. They named him Mr. Football of 1991. He began his career in cold water. It was a very small town.

He was a high school boy he had two girls that he had a crush on and they both had crushes on him. The blond was his high school sweetheart. He later went on and married Macy . Macy was the band geek. His mom wasn't able to come to any of his football games to watch him play because she was working to try and support her family. He was going to quit football to get a job and help his mom pay for bills. Ohio State had already offered him a scholarship so he kept playing.

I really like the part where he debated whether to play his last game. If he didn't get hurt he could go to college and end up in the NFL and help his mom by giving her money. His favorite college team was Ohio State. When he got to the Bengals he was going to give his mom money so she didn't have to work long shifts.

The music when they enter to the football field. I think his truck is awesome. It is one of my dream trucks. He has an 84 Chevy custom deluxe. I really admire how respectful he is to his mom. I would do anything to help my mom out.

There are some people that may dislike the fact that he tried to kill himself. I don't think that Kurt Russell play a good coach. The mood of the movie made me feel drowsy its kind of sad so I disliked that.

I disliked that his mom didn't come to his football game. I don't like how his dad wasn't in the movie. His dad wasn't even a part of his life. Also his coach made the game always in his hands. He had to pull the weight of his team.
