The 2011 sports drama, Touchback, is an interesting mixture of "Back to the Future meets Field of Dreams," only the sport is high school football.
Brian Presley stars as Scott Murphy, one-time prep football star who's now just a farmer with a family in Ohio. Murphy is given the unique chance to return to his "glory days," and the life-changing decisions that come with the territory.
As a high school hotshot, Murphy became a hero by making the game-winning play in the Ohio state championship game, but conversely, also suffered a career-ending knee injury in making the play. Handed a second chance, Murphy struggles with deciding how to "re-live" his magical moment, and seeks the advice of Coach Hand, his longtime coach and mentor.
Beautifully filmed, and boasting a most unique storyline, Touchback is certain to appeal to a majority of one-time Friday night heroes who dream of getting a "second chance" at glory.
