Movies that are based on a true story are always a plus for me...I'm intrigued by stories about other people's lives, especially when they are inspiring and encouraging. 23 Blast definitely falls into this category, so I was so happy to receive this DVD for a review.
23 Blast is based on the true story of Travis Freeman, who is a typical teenager living in a small Kentucky town. He's a local hero on and off the high school football field and in the prime of his youth. He unexpectedly contracts an infection that destroys his optic nerve and leaves him blind virtually over night. With the encouragement of his parents, the challenges of his physical therapist, his best friend Jerry, and a coach who he admires and who inspires him, Travis shows his bravery by competing on the gridiron and helping his team advance to the State Playoffs. He struggles not only with is own afflictions but also a best friend who has his own issues, but still he perseveres.
Without giving away the entire story line, I can only recommend that you see the movie for yourself! As a bonus, we are giving one AWESOME reader 23 Blast on DVD. Simply complete the options on the Rafflcopter form below...Good Luck!
