All-American Story, August 22, 2009
The inner city setting and basketball theme are simply backdrops for the principles and values learned from the story's lead character (John Hawkins). An account of a high school team's season proves to be full of curves attempting to detour them from their goal of returning the program to its once proud prominence. As the title alludes to, it is John that must rely on his character to ensure his players have the opportunity to reach its goals both on the court, in the classroom and in life. This is an all-American story that has plenty of X's and O's for the avid basketball fan as well as absorbing off the court action allowing you to feel the full range of emtions as if you are part of the team on a quest for a state championship.
