Inspired by the uplifting true story, Jim Caviezel (The Passion of the Christ) plays legendary high school football coach Bob Ladouceur during the season that changed everything. As coach of the De La Salle Spartans football team, Ladouceur always taught his players that winning is not the most important thing. What matters most is commitment to excellence, playing together as a team, and sacrificing yourself for the love of your teammates.
Yet somehow, with the aid of assistant coach Terry Eidson (Michael Chiklis, TV's "The Shield"), he led his team to an incredible record-breaking 151 straight victories over 13 years and several national titles. When his wife Bev (Laura Dern, Jurassic Park) urges him to focus more on his family, Bob is blinded by the pressure to keep the streak alive. In the midst of a season of crisis and tragedy when the Spartans stood to lose everything, a remarkable young player (Alexander Ludwig, The Hunger Games) helps Ladouceur rediscover his own principles that teamwork outshines personal glory When The Game Stands Tall.
