I wanted to let you know about another inspirational video I was able to watch this week.
Inspirational Documentary, “Season of a Lifetime” was released on DVD on August 27th.
A Joint Venture between Endorphin Entertainment and Fisheye Media Productions, the Story Chronicles the Terminal Illness of Jeremy Williams, Head Coach of Greenville High and His Team’s Unwavering Determination
Nashville, TN – (July 18, 2013) – On August 27, Word Films is slated to release the Endorphin Entertainment / Fisheye Media Productions inspirational documentary “Season of a Lifetime” on DVD. The film follows Greenville High football coach Jeremy Williams as he perseveres and inspires his team throughout their winning 2010 season in the face of his progressing ALS disease. For his final season as coach, Williams’ beloved small-town Greenville Patriots battle to the playoffs and adopt his never-surrender attitude. “Season of a Lifetime” is produced by Cohen, Bob McAllister and Jason Haley and executive produced by Chris Pullaro. Cohen also served as director and editor of the film.
In 2009, filmmaker Rick Cohen became interested in the story after reading an article in The Atlanta Journal-Constitution which recounted the story of the terminally-ill high school football coach that led his team to an undefeated season. Cohen arranged a meeting with Williams and eventually beat out stiff competition from major TV networks to produce the movie. In 2010, in spite of doctors’ recommendations and deteriorating health, Williams returned to coach one final season and brought his team once again through a victorious season. Cohen’s cameras captured everything from the field to the doctor’s examination room. The result is a moving and inspiring film that encourages people to live life to the fullest in spite of any adversity.
The 89-min DVD also includes special footage featuring images from Williams’ college days, footage of the 2009 Greenville football team and the “Extreme Makeover Home Edition” segment. For further information and to view the trailer please visit www.seasonofalifetime.tv.
This movie is a great example of how people can handle a bad situation. How they can press forward and still make a difference in the lives of others. I was really impressed with Jeremy Williams and all that he has gone through. He is obviously a great husband, father and coach. I am glad that someone made a documentary about his story. The film is a mix of football, family and faith.
