Sean Porter was a football player who turned into a juvenile detention counselor. He wrestles with the seemingly insolvable problem. The vast majority of young men who leave detention fall right back into crime. Looking for a way to give these not-yet-hardened kids a taste of self-esteem and discipline, Porter manages to persuade his superiors to let him teach the kids football - and then take on other high school football teams. Based on a true story.

Excellent movie! Not your typical high school sports movie: realistic tension, sobering insight and excellent performances by all cast members. Based on a true story.

VERY UPLIFTING & INSPIRING FILM OF VERY SAD REALITY OF BROKEN SOCIETY BREEDING BROKEN FAMILIES.

And yet,,,charting their own destiny against all odds,, GLORY is made by those who refuse to be ENSLAVED by broken society, breeding broken families, ALREADY conditioned & condemned to fail.

Some birds are NOT meant to be caged.

i love this movie. at first i thought it would be like remember the titans, but i liked it much better.

the best part about it is that a) it's a true story and b) most of the script they wrote were actual words said by the actual people and that's pretty cool :D

I watched the Gridiron Gang. This movie is a true story and it is about these kids who get arrested for the crime they commit. But then their Coach gets them together to form a Football team. And when the Coach’s mother dies, the team dedicates their game to her. The win against the Panthers and they make it to the Playoffs. When they get to the playoffs they lose the championship. This movie is not a documentary but it is a movie that it is based on. It stars Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson.
