Facing the Giants

THE STORY: From the award-winning producers of FLYWHEEL comes a new, action-packed, family-friendly drama about a high school football coach who draws up a new game plan for his team … and himself.

In his six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never had a winning season. Even the hope of a new season is squelched when the best player on his Shiloh Eagles decides to transfer schools. After losing their first three games of the season, the coach discovers a group of fathers are plotting to have him fired. Combined with pressures at home, Coach Taylor has lost hope in his battle against fear and failure.

However, an unexpected challenge helps him find a purpose bigger than just victories. Daring to trust God to do the impossible, Coach Taylor and the Eagles discover how faith plays out on the field … and off.

With God, all things are possible …


Aimee were recently given this DVD and were told "its slow in some places, but a good movie." While this movie will not win any Academy Awards, it is very humbling. It is more that a feel good movie, it is a move that reminds us that "With God all things are possible." As we sit in our cushy lives trying to make it on our own, this movie is a good reminder that our life is better with God in it and directing it.

One of my favorite scenes is when the assistant coaches use multiple biblical parallels to teach their kicker how to kick a field goal.

Rent or buy it, sit back on your couch and be ready to be moved.
