The downloadable resource below is a part of PCA's collection of movie discussion guides, which aim to help you make the most out of movie viewing with your team or child. Movies provide a plethora of "teachable moments" that can be seized upon by coaches and parents to help young athletes take away lessons that will help them be successful, contributing members of society.

We Are Marshall, based on a true story, follows the story of the 1971 Marshall University football team and coach Jack Lengyel’s efforts to rebuild the Thundering Herd football team and the Marshall community after all 75 players and coaches died in a horrific plane crash the season before. This film includes themes of overcoming tragedy and loss, using sports to heal a community, playing multiple sports, absolute dedication, and effective teamwork.
