Facing The Giants

Synopsis: An action-packed drama about a Christian high school football coach who uses his undying faith to battle the giants of fear and failure. In six years of coaching, Grant Taylor has never led his Shiloh Eagles to a winning season. After learning that he and his wife Brooke face infertility, Grant discovers that a group of fathers are secretly organizing to have him dismissed as head coach. Devastated by his circumstances, he cries out to God in desperation. When Grant receives a message from an unexpected visitor, he searches for a stronger purpose for his football team. He dares to challenge his players to believe God for the impossible on and off the field. When faced with unbelievable odds, the Eagles must step up to their greatest test of strength and courage. What transpires is a dynamic story of the fight between faith and fear.

Blue, 18.

Set. Hit. Hit.

Zach. Zach. Crossbuck 30.

Crossbuck 30.

Crossbuck 30. Crossbuck 30.

- Ready?

- Ready.

The Eagles will have to go for it

on fourth down

with just 42 seconds left in the game

and no timeouts.

Coach Taylor can get his first winning

season for the Shiloh Christian Academy

if they can pull this play off.

Move it, team! Set, hit!

Zach Avery pitches back to Jacob Hall.

Jeremy Johnson's going down the field.

- Here come the Tigers.

- Throw it, Jacob!

Jacob's gonna try to tuck it and run,

and he's taken down at the 40-yard line,

stopped by Lewis Slaughter.

Jeremy Johnson was wide open.

If he'd had a few seconds more, this

game might have had a different outcome.

As it is, the Tigers will take over now

and will no doubt run out the clock,

ending Coach Grant Taylor's bid for

his first winning season in six years.

Now he'll have to wait until next season

for that all-elusive winning record.

That's if they let him

come back next year.

- Hi.

- Get 'em, Claire.

Hey, Grant. Come on, y'all.

Quit talking. Let's go, let's go. Hurry.

What?

What? You gotta be kidding me.

- This had better be a joke.

- No.

Mandy said he came in this morning,

got his papers.

A player can't just transfer to another

school. He's gotta change his address.

He did. He's moving in with his dad.

I can't believe that. This is

the third time this has happened.

Spend three years pouring into 'em

and when they get to their senior year,

they transfer to a rival school.

Why?

Well, 'cause at the end of the season,

nobody wants to be on TV

going, "We're number six, baby.

We're number six."

Well, you asked.

Just had to go there, didn't you?

- Did Darren switch to Tucker?

- We'll talk about it in a minute.

- So it's true?

- We'll talk about it in a minute.

Huddle up.

Coach, is it true

that Darren transferred to Tucker?

I got word this morning

that Darren did transfer to Tucker.

- There goes the season.

- The season will be whatever we make it.

Who's gonna take his place?

He scored a third of our points.

You let me worry about that.

We're not starting as if it's doomsday.

- Nobody's irreplaceable.

- Darren is.

Darren is not. There's more

to a good football team than a running back.

If anything, this ought to push you

to take up the slack.

Stop worrying about Darren.

Start your drills.

- We got a game to play this Friday night.

- Let's go, Shiloh. Come on. Let's go.

Why'd you park all the way out there?

Had to. It died again.

Why don't we get a new battery?

I'll get Brady to help me tomorrow.

I don't wanna think about it now.

- Do you want me to take a look at it for you?

- Stop it.

Oh, sweetheart...

I don't know what that smell is.

I've scrubbed everything I can.

- It's terrible.

- I know it is, but what else can I do?

I don't know where it's coming from.

This day stunk. Why shouldn't my house?

- What do you mean?

- Darren transferred to Tucker.

What? He did not.

Yep. Came by and got his papers,

didn't even say goodbye.

- Why?

- Why do you think?

Didn't see a chance of winning

at Shiloh.

But it ain't like Tucker's

gonna guarantee him a scholarship.

- I bet the boys are frustrated.

- More than you know.

I meant to throw that away.

Did you think you were pregnant?

I don't know. I just wanna be pregnant

so bad that my mind plays tricks on me.

You know, it's been four years

since we started trying.

Would you be opposed

to me going to see a specialist?

No.

I'd just like to know what she says.

OK.

I thought we were having

spaghetti tonight.

Stove's not working.
