We Are Marshall (2006)
Posted 12 December 2011 - 2:31 AM
On November 14, 1970, Marshall University and the entire community of Huntington, West Virginia, experienced the greatest air tragedy in the history of collegiate athletics. Seventy-five members of the Marshall football team, coaches, university staff, community members, and crew members died in the crash.
In 2006, more than 35 years later, Warner Bros. and Thunder Road Pictures produced a feature film about the crash and Marshall's struggle to field a team in the ensuing years.
In November, 1970, virtually the entire football team and coaches of Marshall University (Huntington, W.V.) die in a plane crash. That spring, led by Nate Ruffin, a player who was ill and missed the fatal flight, students rally to convince the board of governors to play the 1971 season. The college president, Don Dedman, must find a coach, who then must find players. They petition the NCAA to allow freshmen to play, and coach Jack Lengyel motivates and leads young players at the same time that he reexamines the Lombardi creed that winning is the only thing. The father and the fiancée of a player who died find strength to move on. Can Marshall win even one game in 1971?

I'm really into sports movie but this is a favorite of mine regardless of genre.
Perhaps it's because it did happen in real life and many suffered the pain. (feels down)
