But everything changed when the team finally loses a game. The team and its coaching staff are tested in every way imaginable, dealing with accusations from rival coaches of recruiting players
- a big no-no in high school football - to the untimely death of a player.
What the film does well is communicate a message of persevering through adversity, no matter what. De La Salle faced tremendous adversity and the players did not let the game itself determine who they were as young men. I would recommend anyone to see this film, especially if you are on a sports team or are a coach of a sports team. When the Game Stands Tall is not quite up there with my all time favorite sports films but it's worth seeing nonetheless.
I Give It A: B+
