Goofs

Incorrectly considered a goof, Travis Freeman's jersey number is 36 in the first half of the film, and 63 in the last but this is due to him making a positional change requiring his number to change to reflect this (offensive and defensive linemen have to wear numbers between 50 and 79) See more »

Quotes

Mary Freeman: Oooh, you're my favorite son.
Travis Freeman: Mom, I'm your ONLY son.

This movie is based upon a gentleman who became paralyzed via eyesight and overcame the odds in his battles in fighting and getting back to doing what he loved which was playing football.
