(2014) (Jim Caviezel, Alexander Ludwig) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Sports Drama: A successful high school football coach must contend with the challenges of keeping his team's record win streak alive and what to do should his latest squad fail at that.
- It's 2003 and De La Salle High School coach Bob Ladouceur (JIM CAVIEZEL) has once again led his Spartan football team through an undefeated, championship season, extending their winning streak to 151 games. But with stars Cam Colvin (SER'DARIUS BLAIN) and T.K. Kelly (STEPHAN JAMES) having graduated, he and assistant coach Terry Eidson (MICHAEL CHIKLIS) are concerned about whether the rising class of seniors can help the rest of the team rise to the occasion and play to the best of their abilities.
That's particularly true of Tayshon Lanear (JESSIE USHER), a talented but cocky kid who only believes in himself and doesn't think he needs to practice. That puts him at odds with Bob's son, Danny (MATTHEW DADDARIO), who's on the team as a receiver, as well as star running back Chris Ryan (ALEXANDER LUDWIG). He's facing pressure of another kind, namely from his overbearing, glory-seeking father, Mickey (CLANCY BROWN), who wants him to break the state scoring record.
At the same time, Bob's wife, Bev (LAURA DERN), is concerned that he's being more of a coach than a father to Danny and their other kids, and that he's working too hard. That comes to a head when a heart attack sidelines the coach and threatens their upcoming season. Undeterred, quarterback Rick Salinas (RICHARD KOHNKE), defensive end Joe Beaser (JOE MASSINGILL), Chris, Danny and the rest do what they can to deal with the various pressures of the game and season, especially with the win streak looming above them.
