We Are Marshall (12-Dec-2006)

Director: McG

Writers: Cory Helms; Jamie Linden

Keywords: Drama, Football, Airplane Crash

Sports drama follows coach Jack Lengyel's efforts to keep Marshall University's football program afloat in the wake of a devastating plane crash.

A plane carrying seventy-five members of Marshall University's Thundering Herd football team, staff, and boosters heading back to West Virginia from a game in North Carolina crashes, killing everyone aboard. Marshall's president favors an indefinite suspension of football operations; facing protests, he reneges and hires upstart coach Jack Lengyel, who immediately goes to work transforming a ramshackle team of walk-on players into a force capable of repairing the bruised pride of Huntington, West Virginia.
