Though Terrence Howards in everything
The film was a gentle reminder to pursue your dreams and know that excellence is not a respecter of persons. Also, it made me recall the people in my own life that played the role of Coach Ellis, i.e. one who gave me direction and reminded me to make the most of every opportunity and give my absolute best.
Although hard I will not give any details about the film, but simply ask that you add it to your "should see" list :) In closing, considering how much I love quotes, I'll leave you w/ the one that I believe ushered us to the bridge/turning point in the film.
"My life is way too short for me to spend my time around people who don't care about nothin'" - Coach Jim Ellis
