Amazing, see Desean in a great light with his family ...
16 November 2013 | by hses-schreiberSee all my reviews

It is very unusual to have incredible footage of a superstar athlete at a young age. Very real story of a father who obviously loves his children & wants great success for them - THINK NFL.

This movie is not a biography of Desean Jackson... it is a story of a group of men who invested countless hours to get Desean to the NFL. Amazing footage and heart-warming family discussions are the heart and soul of this great documentary. Great work by Desean's big brother Byron to put hundreds of hours of footage into this production. I am using this and a few ESPN 30 by 30 documentaries to show my video editing class how to tell a story.
