Fantastic Catholic movie! A movie worth watching again. They say the "Our FATHER" the right way!

I'm not a big sports fan but the background story made it worth watching. It reminds me of the movie "Remember the Titans", which is another great movie. The coach's approach inspires me to be a greater influence for good in all my circles. It's not always about "the game" but how we let our experiences shape us into something better.

I was so disappointed in this flick. I expected better. It's no "Saturday Nights Lights" or any of the other great sports movies..

I loved this movie and was excited to see the Bellevue Wolverines depicted as well. A really touching story for all of us who love sports and real life.

EWE! -- I'd rather eat doggy do-do than watch this stinking turd of a movie. This would be a good movie for retarded hamsters to watch.

I saw the movie and I had liked it
this is based on a true story but not for children to watch this would be good for the football teams to watch and referee's

Yes even though this is a "christian based" movie it was still a fantastic and moving film.

Christian based crap. Like watching leave it to beaver in boring two hour color.

Great famly movie. Has elements of Remember the Titans and Friday Night Lights and as the covers says, even Hoosiers, in it. The coach stresses spiritual growth, as well as teamwork, in an effort to mold productive young men, not just football players.
