Do you have the character to beat the toughest challenges in your life?

My All-American tells the courageous story of Freddie Steinmark, an undersized player full of heart who earned a football scholarship to the University of Texas to play for legendary coach Darrell Royal. Freddie's character earns him the opportunity to play on the field, but an injury eventually forces him off the field and into the fight for his life.

My All-American Companion Activities helps students see the leadership opportunities that are available to all of us by writing a story of impact with our lives.

In order to complete these activities students will need to watch the movie My All-American, which has a rating of PG and a run time of 1 hour and 58 minutes.
