Sean Astin plays a young man whose effort and ambition is larger than his physical and mental capabilities. It has been his goal since childhood to play football for Notre Dame, but when he grows older, he finds he's short, non-athletic and his schooling capabilities are below what's expected. However, through hard work and determination, he might be able to come through! An inspirational true story that's excellent for family night.
