- Dan Reeves, NFL Coaching Great

"FACING THE GIANTS carries a wonderful Christian and family message. I'd like for everyone to see it!"
- Mrs. Tom Landry, widow of legendary Coach Tom Landry of the Dallas Cowboys

"Family Values" is an overused and in some quarters misused concept. Still, this is a family values movie that should be seen by every nuclear family and every community of families. I don't like football movies generally. The football parts aren't realistic. This is an exception. Well done!"
- Vince Lombardi, Jr., speaker and son of legendary Packers Coach, Vince Lombardi

"FACING THE GIANTS is a fantastic family movie. It is one that talks about real life situations and the types of things that our young people are going through all across this nation. It will make you laugh... it will make you cry... it will get you excited not only about the sport of football, but about living for God and having your priorities right where they belong. I recommend it highly!"
- Coach Mark Richt, University of Georgia Head Football Coach

"At some point in our lives, we all say "Why?" (like in the locker room scene). Then we turn our life, our family, our job, our circumstances over to God, and let him have room to work."
- Coach Jerry Moore, head football coach of the national champions, Appalachian State University

"I was moved emotionally and spiritually by the message of FACING THE GIANTS. It is different when a Christian coach is portrayed in a positive light, and when God answers prayer by changing people's lives. I believe the movie will have an impact on many people who watch it."
- Randy Allen, Texas State High School Champion Coach
