Best story ever - couldn't believe it

I cried multiple times, the story keeps building. Pieces together so many voices to tell the narrative of a true hero, a role model. These grown men loved their coach and still do all these years later. An underdog story and much more.

Saw this at the LA International Film Festival.

It connected...

It was SO human, so authentic. It showed how the white coach went beyond racial lines...and so did the players...to the point they were scant, or none. It showed the student behind what we saw on the surface. It showed the depth of emotion that the coach inspired-tears, but also happiness, and uplifted. It showed the coach and the players are SUCCESSFUL. It showed a man who made his own way as a coach and a firefighter. It showed mistakes of some students, brought on by limited experience and family challenges, did not define the person. It showed there are no "stupid" students or "stupid" questions....what motivation did for many, and what the dyslexia diagnosis meant. It showed the quirky, fascinating end-but that was because the team was PREPARED. Pasteur: "Chance favors the prepared mind". Or prepared team.

It documentary reflected enormous effort of the film and the students, both skillfully interwoven. Bottom line: It WORKED.
