From the writer of Hoosiers and Rudy, this is the inspiring true story of Catholic athlete Freddie Steinmark.What Steinmark (Finn Wittrock) wants most in the world is to play college football. Although he is deemed too small by many, Freddie brings a fierce fight to the game that gets him noticed by legendary University of Texas coach Darrell Royal (Aaron Eckhart).
Awarded a scholarship and a chance to play for the Longhorns, Freddie sets off to Austin with his high school sweetheart, Linda (Sarah Bolger), determined to make the team. Alongside his old teammate Bobby Mitchell (Rett Terrell) and new pal James Street (Juston Street), Freddie is put through the paces of a grueling practice schedule. The boys' camaraderie off the field translates into solid playing on it, and they help the Longhorns have an amazing season.
Led by Steinmark, a National Championship is within reach for Texas, but Freddie's courage and faith in God are severely tested when he receives a shocking cancer diagnosis, and his teammates discover in him what it truly means to have a heart of a champion.
