Storyline

What Freddie Steinmark (Finn Wittrock) wants most in the world is to play football. Although he is deemed too small by the usual athletic standards, his father trains him hard. 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. But just when they're reveling in the success of the season, Freddie suffers an injury that leads to a shocking diagnosis and the biggest ...

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 »

It'll get ya...
18 May 2020 | by jakebrannSee all my reviews

If you grew up playing sports and loving them this movie will hit you right in the feel goods. I grew up playing football in Texas and I love the game. I went on to play Division 1 football and an injury ended my football career. If you've had any kind of similar story this movie will become personal and you'll see yourself in his shoes... maybe not dying but your football career ending. I wish there had been less of the Christian faith underlying tone but it was still good. Clearly God wasn't listening to you, Freddie! Jk. Anyway, the acting was pretty good but I have to agree with other reviews about the make up on "old" Aaron Eckhart... it was pretty bad and his acting as the old man pretty cringeworthy! I wish they had shown more of his struggle after the amputation because he only lived 1.5 years after the surgery.

To the reviewer saying the time wasn't realistic because he had football practice, did extra training with his Dad and went out with his date at 7 pm... what's the problem there? It was summer! He could easily have practice at 7-8 in the morning for 2-3 hours, trained with his Dad some afterward and been done by noon! How is that implausible? You said something about him not being tired? We you ever a teenager? I regularly had days busier than that and still went out with friends at night! The joys of youth!

The movie is certainly worth the watch and a good story. Just don't expect there not to be some cheesy parts or Oscar winning performances!
