for we walk by faith, not by sight --2 Corinthians 5:7
Excellent story of a courageous life and those coming alongside. The story doesn't stop here. Dr. Travis Freeman is an adjunct professor at the University of the Cumberlands. The movie centers around the Corbin, Kentucky, 1990s high school football team and the supporting community; to encourage and build a team, a safe team to build a life. Recognition is given to the mobility instructor who guided Travis in orientation, which was excellently portrayed. Travis lost his sight from an illness as he was entering the seventh grade. He had been part of the sports teams during his fifth and sixth grades. Travis continued through his high school years as a team member of the Corbin Redhounds.
I liked watching the involvement of his parents, coach, and friends with faith and You-Can-Do-It attitude. So important to be surrounded by those who love you and faith in God. I highly recommend this story for families and youth groups.
