We were invited to a screening of My All American. Going into the screening, we didn't know a lot about the movie. It was going to be another football movie. Boy did we get so much more. The story and morals stuck with me long after the ending of the movie.
Synopsis: What Freddie Steinmark wants most in the world is to play football. Deemed too small by the usual athletic standards, his father trains him hard, and Freddie brings a fight to the game that ultimately gets him noticed - by none other than legendary University of Texas coach Darrell Royal.
What might be deemed in today's culture as an overbearing parent, this movie shows the outcome as being one of dedication and love of family. The message of hard work, family first and a never failing upbeat determination is proven over and over again and it is addictive! An amazing testimony to a life well lived.
Go see it, and take your family. You won't regret it.
