Storyline

Girls? The thought of coaching them seems preposterous to Clay Driscoll (earnest newcomer Jeffrey Donovan), who travels to Middleton, Okla., in the 1960s prepared to coach the varsity boys' team. But that position is filled, so he's forced to coach the girls' team -- the Lady Cyclones. Faced with an under-performing crew of untrained players, the coach begins to treat the girls like boys. They run laps in a closed gym and practice shots and plays they've never tried before -- and eventually their "old-fashioned grit" leads them to a Cinderella season culminating with the state championships. Along their way, Driscoll and the girls overcome several obstacles, most of all, gaining a fan base. Meanwhile, big man in town Ellis Brawley (Bruce Dern) can't stand Driscoll and his newfangled idea of empowering female athletes. Of course, the Lady Cyclones are up to the task of proving Brawley wrong. Driven by their caring young coach, the girls determine to play as hard as the boys, even ... Written by Froshi

Good Guys Do Win .....Sometimes!
3 September 2007 | by ctsmith60See all my reviews

I really enjoyed seeing this movie about a man I am acquainted with. It is an uplifting kind of movie that makes one feel good and helps restore one's faith in people. Jim (Coach) Keith is such a fine man it really made my day to see a portion of his life, that I was unaware of, brought to the screen for others to appreciate. I cannot claim to know the Coach well, but I worked several years where he coached in the late 70's and he was and is quite a good natured gentleman and a pleasure to be around. I hope in time this movie will get a lot of play on TV so others can appreciate the character of this fine man. It is a great family movie and if you are needing a lift then watch this movie. You will be glad you did!
