My Thoughts ~

My family and I really enjoyed this movie. This movie in based on the true heartfelt story of Travis Freeman. When I got the opportunity to review this movie and read that it was about a young football player who lost his eyesight and continued to play football, I couldn't wait to see it. As a football fan I didn't know how this was possible. So I did a little research and found out this kid played 4 years of varsity football blind.
This is a great film for the whole family. It truly motivates you, to live your life with no excuses! The courage and drive this kid had to overcome such a tragic event in his life, to continue to do what he loved is so inspirational. Despite everything he had to go through, he truly is lucky. His family, coach, teammates and friends were there to encourage him and be there for him every step of the way. We can all learn a lot from this movie.
Overall this movie has its sad moments, but it is really funny as well. There is a really good message in this story, and I definitely recommend watching this movie.
