From the award-winning producers of FLYWHEEL, comes an action-packed PG-rated drama about a Christian high school football coach who uses his undying faith to battle the giants of fear and failure. In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage. What transpires is a dynamic story of the fight between faith and fear.
Producer Sherwood Pictures has announced a September 29, 2006 theatrical release date. The U.S. theatrical release will be handled by Samuel Goldwyn Films, and the TV release by Carmel Entertainment Group, Tustin, California. Sony Pictures Home Entertainment will release the DVD.

Mark Richt, the head football coach at the University of Georgia, has a cameo in the film. Most of the cast and crew were comprised of members of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Georgia.
