When the Game Stands Tall (4-Aug-2014)

Director: Thomas Carter

Writers: Scott Marshall Smith; David Zelon

Based on a book by: Neil Hayes

Keywords: Sports Drama, Football, Biography

Sports drama tells the tale of Bob Ladouceur and his legendary De La Salle High School Spartans football team.

ABSTRACT
Football coach Bob Ladouceur came into the "fixer-upper" job of a lifetime when he became the head coach of De La Salle High School's football team in Concord, California, agreeing to preside over a squad that had never known anything but anguish and futility up to that point. With a mixture of tough love, personality, and flat-out coaching genius, however, he guided the Spartans to an improbable record-setting 151-game winning streak from 1992 to 2003, inspiring his impressionable young players and bringing a fractured community together as dramatized in When the Game Stands Tall.
