The Boy has become quite the football fan, so I thought this movie would be one that he would enjoy. He and I sat down to watch 23 Blast together, and I'm so glad we did.
About the Movie:
Rated PG-13 (brief drinking of alcohol on school property) / 1h 42m
As a typical teenager, Travis Freeman (Mark Hapka) is a local hero both on and off the high-school football field in his small Kentucky town, but in 1997, Travis contracts an infection that destroys his optic nerve and renders him blind overnight. With the loving help and concern of his parents, physical therapist, coach and best friend, Travis demonstrates what true bravery is: He continues to compete on the gridiron and helps his team advance to the state finals.

I loved, loved, loved this movie! It's much more than just a movie about football. Based on a true story, it's quite inspirational. The religious overtones in 23 Blast are understated but present; it's not a "hit you over the head" religious film. It's also not a "hit you over the head" inspirational film where it's all emotionally charged; there are so many humorous moments too that really made us enjoy the movie.
