Alright, alright….now y’all know I’m from Texas, which means that in addition to big hair, I love football. Friday night lights. Saturday afternoon clashes. Sunday afternoon game watching parties. It’s tradition around here, as it is for most of America. So I’m super excited today to share a new movie that’s coming out November 13th: My All American. And I get to host a giveaway for super duper movie swag. Touchdown!
My All American
Growing up with a University of Texas grad (my dad), I heard plenty of stories about Darrell Royal, perhaps the most famous head coach the Longhorns have ever had. And even though it occurred before I was born, I still heard about the 1969 National Title-winning team. But then again, all Longhorns probably have!
What does this have to do with My All American? The movie is about Freddie Steinmark, one of the keystone players of that national championship squad. The team had been in a spiral when Freddie and a few of his teammates joined.
You know what? Here’s a quick synopsis for you:
“What Freddie Steinmark wants most in the world is to play football. Deemed too small by the usual athletic standards, his father trains him hard, and Freddie brings a fight to the game that ultimately gets him noticed – by none other than legendary University of Texas coach Darrell Royal. Awarded a scholarship and a chance to play for the Longhorns, Freddie sets off to Austin determined to make the team. Alongside his old teammate Bobby Mitchell and new pal James Street they rise to the occassion, giving the Longhorns a real chance to turn the team around. But just when they’re reveling in the success of the season, Freddie suffers an injury that leads him to a shocking diagnosis and the biggest challenge he will ever face.”
Need more? There’s Aaron Eckhart as Coach Royal. Can you say yummy? Er, I mean, what a great actor! Here, just watch the trailer for yourself:
My All American is rated PG and opens November 13th. Want to know more? Visit the movie’s official site, or like it on Facebook or follow on Twitter.
