MY ALL AMERICAN tells the true story of a boy who became a hero and what it truly means to have the heart of a champion.
What Freddie Steinmark wants most in the world is to play football. Deemed too small by the usual athletic standards, his father trains him hard, and Freddie brings a fight to the game that ultimately gets him noticed – by none other than legendary University of Texas coach Darrell Royal. Awarded a scholarship and a chance to play for the Longhorns, Freddie sets off to Austin determined to make the team. Alongside his old teammate Bobby Mitchell and new pal James Street they rise to the occassion, giving the Longhorns a real chance to turn the team around. But just when they’re reveling in the success of the season, Freddie suffers an injury that leads him to a shocking diagnosis and the biggest challenge he will ever face.

My family tries to have movie night once a week and since I had movie night with the kids earlier I thought My All American would be perfect for Greg and I to watch. Last weekend when getting ready for bed I suggested to Greg that we watch My All American instead of a movie on Netflix. Once the movie had started we didn’t want to miss any parts because it was really that good. Being inspired by a true story set this movie to another level. The characters did an amazing job. Freddie gave it his all each time he touched the field and off the field. He wouldn’t let nothing stop him until there was nothing more he could do. This movie will touch you and make you cry but most of all it’s a movie that you’ll remember seeing. We both really enjoyed this movie.
