Description

Everyone wants to win.

However, sometimes the stress of winning causes us to break.

But it also exposes the character we possess and give us an opportunity to strengthen that character.

When the Game Stands Tall tells the true story of the De La Salle high school football team in California and its 151 game winning streak. The story touches on the role of leadership on a team, the struggles of being a teenager, parent-child relationships, and living by principles. There are many lessons to learn from this truly inspirational story!
