Synopsis

Fact-based tale of promising young football player who struggles to make the final cut of his high school football team, then succeeds beyond his wildest dreams and is eventually named co-captain. But when his beloved grandmother becomes gravely ill and needs a kidney transplant, the teenager makes a decision that will greatly impact both their lives. Airs 11/21/99 and throughout the month on Showtime.

Dove Review

This inspiring story spotlights a youth’s courage, love of friends and family, and his self-sacrifice. Ms. Reynolds gives another of those wonderful performances that often go un-noticed by award shows. (Due to the subject matter of an ill grandparent, parents should decide if the material is suitable for children under twelve.)

Content Description

Five or six mild expletives and one obscenity; deals with a grandparent who may die.
