As a fledgling football fan, married to a major football fan, with a young adult son who used to play football and loves to watch it, I’ve heard the story of Kurt Warner several times. His resilience, his refusal to give up, and the very personal story of his relationship…it’s all inspirational and is a story that deserves to be heard. And now you can, with American Underdog available for purchase on February 4.
From the press release:
American Underdog tells the inspirational true story of Kurt Warner (Zachary Levi), who went from a stockboy at a grocery store to a two-time NFL MVP, Super Bowl champion, and Hall of Fame quarterback. The film centers on Warner’s unique story and years of challenges and setbacks that could have derailed his aspirations to become an NFL player – but just when his dreams seemed all but out of reach, it is only with the support of his wife, Brenda (Anna Paquin) and the encouragement of his family, coaches, and teammates that Warner perseveres and finds the strength to show the world the champion that he already is. American Underdog is an uplifting story that demonstrates that anything is possible when you have faith, family and determination.

His history, from grocery store cashier to NFL quarterback, can show us all that there’s still time to follow your dreams and make them happen.
