Coming to DVD on January 20th, 2015 is the new faith-based movie "23 Blast." The movie is based on true life events. Travis Freeman plays for a high school football team in Kentucky, the Corbin Redhounds.
He is a talented wide receiver who loses his sight due to a serious infection. He has to rebuild his life and, surprisingly, this includes still playing football when his coach gets the idea to bring him back on the team. In a dramatic turn of events, Travis gets the opportunity to play for his team in a game that could send them to the play-offs.
This movie features a theme of walking by faith and not by sight. The loyalty of Travis' friend, quarterback Jerry Baker, and the faith of his coach, is inspiring. We are recommending this moving story for ages twelve plus, due to a few instances of language. Watching this movie is an experience the viewer will not soon forget.
