This is a companion devotional book to the feature film When the Game Stands Tall starring Jim Caviezel as Coach Bob Ladouceur, Laura Dern as his wife, and Michael Chiklis as assistant coach Terry Eidson. An adaptation of the bestselling book of the same name, the film chronicles the rise of the football program of De La Salle High School (Concord, CA) and their record-setting 151-game winning streak in 1992-2003. The devotional is designed for Christians and others who see the movie and want to go deeper. The 52 devotionals are based on Scripture and relate to an aspect of the game of football (e.g., Listening to the Call, Knowing the Playbook, Practicing Well, Pushing through Exhaustion, Knowing Your Opponent, Playing Fair, etc.). Each devotional covers three pages and will feature a relevant Bible passage, a devotional based on a football related topic and a page for journaling personal reflections.

We are all certain to face some adversity in our lives: some harder to overcome than others. Having a man of remarkable faith and character stand beside you, coach you, mentor you, and lead by example is a treasure almost too difficult to describe. Coach Lad is that man. He taught us that even the smallest details in our lives and how we act or react have consequences. And, that working diligently and leaning on your faith when times get tough can get you through anything. That is what being a De La Salle Spartan is all about. Les Hommes De Foi! We are men of faith!
