I think that this is the best movie that I have ever waked because it tells a story about the truth about football every thinks it easy to come back from an accident and still be able to play.I had it happened to me but now I am back and I do not take anything easy anymore I hit harder then ever before.I love football and anything about football.

Easily one of the top 10 best ever made for TV movies. A young James Cann and Billy Dee Williams make it ever more interesting. Do your best to MAN UP, but get a box of tissue just in case. It's a powerful tear jerker. I was a "kid" (12-13)when I first saw the movie, the race realations element really got my attention. Thank GOD things have changed....
