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.

You are kidding me.

So we got a leak in the back room,

the dryer only works half the time,

the car's dying on us

and now the stove's broken.

That's about right.

No wonder I'm losing my hair.

I love you.

And now your Georgia Sports Break

with Alicia Houston.

The Richland Giants start football practice

as the new school year gets under way.

The team will be defending a three-year

GISA state championship run.

Now they prepare to fight for a fourth.

I'm here with head coach Bobby Lee Duke

of the Giants.

How does this year look for the team?

Alice, we've grown real fond

of the state title.

And we don't see any reason

to give it up this year.

I've got most of my starters coming back

and I've got a strong bench.

So I've only got one thing to say:

Get off the tracks,

'cause the freight train's coming.

I hope that's not a sign of the way

the rest of the season's gonna go, Coach.

- Why did he have to say that?

- Just let it go.

I hate this car.

Let's find somebody with jumper cables

and let's go home.

It's bad enough you lose your first game.

Now I can't even start my own car.

This happens to everybody.

Don't be embarrassed about it.

- Grant, I wasn't that embarrassed.

- Then why did you hide?

Why does this house

have to stink so bad?

You'll get used to it

after a couple of hours.

Honey, we gotta do something

about the car.

The only thing it does faithfully for us

is break down.

That's about right.

Would it not be better

just to get a small new car?

- You know we can't afford that.

- How do other people do it?

Other people make

more than 24,000 a year.

You make 6,000. That takes us to 30.

Enough to help us

with repairs occasionally,

not with a new car payment.

Besides, there's other bills

we don't normally have to pay.
