HFA standing Tall with Tiger-Cats and Sony PicturesUpdated Sunday August 10, 2014 by Hamilton Football Association.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Tim Hortons Play Action have partnered with Sony Pictures and Hamilton Football Association to help promote their new movie “When the Game Stands Tall”.
Many of the HFA players have been invited to attend the premier on August 14th along with member of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
This movie encompasses the true values and themes that are the very foundation of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats Tim Hortons Play Action program. The movie brings to life the incredible winning streak of the De La Salle High School football team: 151 straight victories over 12 years. Although Coach Bob Ladouceur is building his seemingly invincible national powerhouse, he has emphasized purpose and significance rather than streaks and titles. He places little value on winning; instead he focuses on his players giving “perfect effort in life”.
The values and themes that coincide directly with Play Action are Perseverance, Leadership, Achievement, Youth development, Attitude, Character, Teamwork, Integrity, Opportunity, and No excuses.
The movie is being released August 22, 2014 and the Ticats and Sony Pictures believe that as football players and fans you will really enjoy this movie.
