Season Of A Lifetime

The inspiring story of head football coach, Jeremy Williams, who, terminally ill with ALS (commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig’s disease) refuses to retire, deciding to coach for one last season. Rick Cohen's cameras follow him as his resilient Greenville Patriots high school team battles a tough Region 4 schedule in their quest for the Georgia State Championship. A father figure to his underprivileged players, Coach Williams is also a loving husband to his high school sweetheart, and a loving father to two kids, one who is stricken with a debilitating disease. Family and faith are the driving inspirations that enable Coach Williams to strive toward the impossible, making it truly a Season of a Lifetime.

I am not one to care for football movies, or any sports movies really, but this documentary was put together brilliantly, and I really enjoyed it! I needed tissues for this movie, but I was rooting for the good guys the whole time! A bittersweet movie, but if you gotta go out - go out with a bang!
