his movie was fantastic; it is a ³must-see´ for everyone. It had me hooked from the previews. Iknew this was a Christian movie, written and produced by a church group, but I had notexpected that even the previews would honor the Lord! That was so awesome; it completelycaught me off-guard; and the movie was tremendous. I highly recommend it.The movie starts with a high school football team that is losing very badly.

Wheneveryone else in the world seems to have turned their back on you, God loves you²and HE willALWAYS be there. Remember that. HE will never leave you; He will never forsake you; He willnever betray you. He will...
