Edify Media: Season of a Lifetime (review) #grow4christ

on September 2, 2013

About the documentary: The inspiring story of head football coach, Jeremy Williams, who, terminally ill with ALS (also know 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 lover father to two kids, one who is also 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.”

 

You can watch a trailer at Season of a Lifetime.

My Opinion:

I’m not a football fan, I’m not really a fan of any sport, however I am one for an inspirational story that keeps God at the center of their life and therefore their stories.  I’ve never heard of Jeremy Williams or his team before but he truly goes above and beyond the call of duty and it’s not because he’s trying to prove something it’s because he truly loves the Lord, his family and his team – going the distance.  My children didn’t watch this one with me because they were a little board with the documentary filming style, however I did find it very interesting and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for something to inspire them to look toward the future, even if it seems bleak.
