Thoughts on Under the Stadium Lights

ThoughtsUnder the Stadium Lights is a sports drama that focuses on four high school footballers that need to bounce back after a disastrous result, as well as learning to cope with their person problems when a local preacher gives them a chance to express their feelings of pain they are going through off the field. This is an important look at the struggles people will have in life and will show how people will come together as a community to support each other, with this being based on a real story, it would be interesting to learn just how much of this is real. This is more about the drama of coming together over seeing any of the football involved, even if I wouldn’t understand the game anyway. It does have a religious theme playing into the recover the people must go through.

Final Thoughts Under the Stadium Lights is a religious sports drama that lacks the big impact on the main game changing sequences.
