Director Reginald Hudlin Statement
I was so inspired and moved by this true story. So now he’s going to play football at a D-1 level, manage his insane school workload and be the father to his little brother. It’s an impossible task.
This is a powerful, inspirational story that really is family entertainment in the best sense of the word.
That’s what I promise you with this movie.
Jay Reeves Statement
This story just hit me. There’s love and there’s hard work, and all of these things are beautiful and tell a great story.
Corinne Foxx Statement
The connection that Ray and Fahmarr have is so heartwarming and you’re really rooting for them.
