^Haven't read the book but it sure is a good movie. Will find and read the book now.
I like the film adaptation better than Blind Side, Remember The Titans and Heaven Can Wait, also favorite football movies of mine. Still hate All The Right Moves and Mean Machine, all versions.
"O people, we created you from the same male and female, and rendered you distinct peoples and tribes, that you may recognize one another. The best among you in the sight of GOD is the most righteous. GOD is Omniscient, Cognizant." (49:13)
