Back Gridiron Gang

Movie Synopsis

The based-on-a-true-story account of Sean Porter, an officer at the Camp Kilpatrick juvenile detention facility, who finally became fed up with the recidivism rate of the young men who passed through his program. Determining that goals and discipline were what was lacking, Porter and Malcolm Moore, his colleague, decide to create a competitive football program.

While the film adheres to most of the sports-movie standards -- like the value of sweat and team work -- it does not sugar coat the outcome of these young men. The film examines the idea of second chances, forgiving your enemies, repenting of mistakes, and the power of God's Word to create change.
