When the Game Stands Tall

I just got back from the movies.  I watched the movie, "Get On Up" about the life of James Brown. It was really worth seeing as I learned a lot of him and his history that I didn't know.

For football fans there was a preview for the movie, "When the Game Stands Tall."  It stars Jim Caviezel (played Christ in the Passion) as Coach Bob Ladouceur as the head coach of De La Salle High School in Concord, CA.  They had a record setting 151 game winning streak from 1992-2003!

I never knew of this record or streak until seeing the ad for the movie.  Was wondering if anyone followed the team during their streak or was aware of it.  I am definitely looking forward to seeing it. It is a bright spot amongst a sea of darkness and pessimism that is sometimes Hollywood.
