‘Season of a Lifetime’ ~ CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
The inspiring story of head football coach, Jeremy Williams, who, terminally ill with the ALS (commonly referred to as Lou Gherig’s disease) refuses to retire, deciding to coach for one last season. Rick Cohen’s cameras follow him as his resilient Greenville Patriots high school team battles a tough Region 4 schedule in their quest for the Georgia State Championship. A father figure to his underprivileged players, Coach Williams is also a loving husband to his high school sweetheart, and a loving father to two kids, one who is stricken with a debilitating disease. Family and faith are the driving inspirations that enable Coach Williams to strive toward the impossible, making it truly a Season of a Lifetime.
What an inspirational story about Jeremy Williams, who was diagnosed with ALS Disease. What a man of God and what a great attitude in the face of such dire news.
Here are a few things I loved about this documentary:
- How he impacted everyone he met, especially the players on his team.
- You build character with adversity. (I need this reminder daily)
- How he gave himself and his wife 1 day to cry and then the next day you pick up and do what you need to do. (This impacted more than everything else! When the struggles in life seem to overwhelm me and I just want to give up or just cry I remember that is the time I need to praise God and when I do, everything falls back into place, I’m given the strength to do what needs to be done.)
