Excellent film based on a true, inspirational story. There was not a lot of Christianity actually shown in the film, although it was obvious that the coach had a strong walk with God. It shows some great repentance for wrong doing but lacks the repenting towards God which we would have loved to have seen portrayed in the film. Still a fabulous film!
Rick (Sean Faris) is a star player on his dad’s rugby team until a DUI lands him in a reformatory. While he’s serving his sentence, tough rival coach Larry Gelwix (Gary Cole) allows him to play for his team, which helps Rick straighten up his act.
Upon his release, however, Rick becomes a pariah to his former teammates and even his father when he refuses to divulge Gelwix’s strategies. Sean Astin co-stars in this inspiring true story.
