I quickly snapped this shot of my girls walking hand-in-hand down the street in New Orleans. I really love how cute they are holding hands. Wordless Wednesday places to link up: LINK UP HERE:
My All American Movie: Freddie Steinmark show what winners are made of
I have played sports for my entire life. I started in kindergarten and played through college. My father at many points in my life was either always a coach or a supporter. He never missed games and was always there to give me advice on how to make my game better. I appreciate the support that he gave me. I know first hand how tough it can be for athletes.
Athletes tend to be those people who go above and beyond. Athletes are coachable, trainable and are always willing to better themselves. There are many athletes in my life that I have admired and looked to for inspiration.
From the writer of Rudy and Hoosiers, comes a movie about football, courage and showing what winners are truly made of. The story Freddie Steinmark is brought to the big screen. Winner of the the Truly Moving Picture Award from Heartland Film, My All American shares an incredible story of triumph and sheer determination.
MY ALL AMERICAN
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 occasion, 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.
The true story, UT's 1969 national championship-winning football team heroes, Coach Darrell Royal and defensive back Freddie Steinmark. Movie will be released November 13, 2015 starring Finn Wittrock, Aaron Eckhart, Sarah Bolger, Robin Tunney, Michael Reilly Burke. Screenplay written and directed by Angelo Pizzo.
This movie is inspirational and follows the lives of many athletes who made up the 1969 University of Texas Longhorns team. Freddie Steinmark was their fearless leader and indeed an underdog on the gridiron. He then faces the toughest challenge of his life after leading his team to a championship season. This is an excellent and I highly recommend seeing it. My family was riveted.

I nominated my father as an All American. He is the epitome of the American father. My dad served his country in the Army and retired as a Colonel. He also coached me and my sister in every sport imaginable and never missed a game. In addition, he often 2-3 jobs just to support us. There is no one that is more all American than my father.
