Heritage Falls

Synopsis: Charlie Fitzpatrick is the most successful high school basketball coach in Georgia history. While many of his players think of him as a father, his relationship with his own "bookworm" son, Evan, is strained. With the help of his wife, Laura and Evan's wife, Heather, Charlie determines the best way to connect and bond is to take his son and grandson, Markie, who has just announced he's dropping out of college to tour with his folk band, to a rustic mountain cabin for a weekend retreat. Only this cabin is the same site where he took his many winning teams to test their mettle over a grueling military-style obstacle course, the same one Evan, as a student never got the chance to complete. This is Charlie's idea of fun, Evan's idea of a nightmare, and Markie's idea of-well he's young and idealistic; he's just going with the flow. Over the course of three days, through hilarious moments, soul-searching moments and one experience that frightens them all to the core, the men discover what it

Charlie, Charlie,

Charlie, Charlie, Charlie...

Charlie, Charlie, Charlie,

Charlie, Charlie, Charlie!

Charlie, Charlie, Charlie,

Charlie, Charlie, Charlie!

We're all ready for you, Coach.

Charlie, Charlie,

Charlie, Charlie, Charlie!

All right, all right...

all right, all right!

Well, love that energy.

Love that energy.

You know, when you think of

Stevens County High School basketball,

when you mention it,

when you say those words,

there's only one name

that comes to mind.

Charlie Fitzpatrick.

An amazing man,

but now this mountain of a man

is retiring

from being our basketball coach.

I know.

I know, I know.

I love coach Fitz, too.

But this is a day of celebration

of this man's amazing career.

So without further ado,

ladies and gentlemen,

I present to you right now

the most winningest coach...

Say "winningest"!


Yeah! The most winningest coach

in all of Georgia.

My coach, my friend...

Coach Charlie Fitzpatrick!

Let's give it up!

Wow, guys, this is fantastic.

You know, I was one

of the original players back in the day

with Coach Charlie.

Coach Charlie

was always there for me.


I needed someone to talk to

or just to pick me up, he was there.

Man, Coach Charlie

always had time for us.

Coach Charlie treated us as equals.

He always listened.

I mean,

anytime I needed someone to talk to

or just somebody to pick me up,

he was there.

He held us Mustangs,

to a high standard

and himself to an even higher one.

He was like...

He was, uh...

He was like a father.

He was like the father that I never had.

Thank you all so much.

Thank you, Joe.

Most of y'all know Joe

as Principal Allen.

But when I first met Joe,

he was a scrawny little kid

we called "Jumbo."

He ran more suicide sprints

and did more burpees

than any player I've ever coached.

I just never thought

he'd end up harassing me

about filling out my timecard.

Proud of you, Joe.

Proud of all you boys, you men.

I tell you who really should be up here

is the love of my life.

Thanks to her patience

and persistence

and her uncanny ability

to defuse what some call

my dynamite temper,

which I don't know much about.

I think it's overrated.

Technical foul, right there, right there.

Stand up, Laura.

Stand up, sweetheart.

Take a bow.

Give it up for my wife.

One of the greatest privileges

I have ever had as a coach

and as a father is watching my daughter,

Harvey play basketball

for the Lady Mustangs.

Give it up for Harvey.

Stand up, sweet girl.

Harvey, Harvey, Harvey!

Lastly, I don't want to leave out my son.

Proud of him, where are ya?

You here?

Where are you, Junior?

Oh. I, uh...

I'm proud of him, too.

Y'all, I couldn't have done

any of this without my family.

Give it up for my family!

What I'll miss most about this job...

is the people.

The students, the teachers, parents.

We are a team.

We are one.

We are a family!

Hey, Mr. Munpower,

this is Evan Fitzpatrick

over at Southern Scribes.

Yes, sir. I just wanted to let you know

that we got your copy of The Last Ride,

that Tom Edison novel

that you ordered.

Well, do me a favor,

you take a read, and if it's any good,

I'll put it on my reading list.

Mm-hmm. Mmm.

Well, fantastic. Just let me know.

Well, it's here waiting for you,

so whenever you want to come in,

just pick it up.

All right, bye.

Hey, Cedric.

It's Evan over at Southern Scribes.

Yeah, your new Medford book

just got here.

Yeah, fantastic.

Wonderful, yeah.

You have a great day, too.

Thank you so much. Bye.

We should've been there.

Yeah, well we weren't invited.
