The review of this Movie prepared by Kevin Black

A young man, unremarkable in every way, overcomes tremendous adversity and everyone's negative expectations to become part of the greatest football program in the country. The main character gives up literally everything in his life to pursue his dreams, and proves his worth to everyone; self, family, community.
