Inspirational doc

This movie focuses almost entirely on the very personable Bill Courtney, a charismatic southern coach who has given up just endless amounts of his life to his varsity football team in Tennessee. It then goes into the lives of three of the players, Money, O.C. and Chavis, who are both struggling for life outside of football and unsure about the future. It would be easy to dismiss this movie as a real life "Blind Side" type deal, a white man coming down to swoop up and save all of these black players, but race isn't really brought up in this doc. You just see Courtney's tireless perseverance for his team, he LOVES these kids like his own. I wish I had someone like him for my senior year; our team only won 2 games.
