Sometimes you don’t love something until you let it go. The De La Salle High School football team felt this when their eleven-year winning streak ended. The movie When Game Stands Tall is based on a true story and is about how this heavy-hearted football team becomes a better family to each other. They get back on their feet and try to get to the championship.
Then the unexpected happens; one of their players dies. The team is hit hard and then bad things start lining up for the winning team. The football team feels sorry for themselves after their streak ends. The teenage boys try to get themselves back on their feet and win another championship for their coach and the memory of their friend.
This was a wonderful movie for football fans. Some of the players on the actual De La Salle football team went on to be Broncos, like D.J. Williams. This movie was great for kids 10 and up. It got really intense in some scenes when players disagreed, which might be too much for younger kids. The movie had a great style to it. When the field was supposed to look hot, you could see heat waves rising from the grass! You could see each play on the field and hear the clash of helmets as they hit each other. This movie had an entertaining plot, style, and feel. I hope you all go and see this inspiring movie and enjoy it as I have.
