3 Football Movies on Netflix That’ll Encourage Your Student Athlete #NetflixStreamTeam

Our kids will return to school soon, if they haven’t already and if your child plays football they may have already began practice sessions.  For me there are a few ways that help motivate me for strenuous tasks and I will certainly consider football strenuous.  Often times, watching a movie that’s encouraging, motivating or reflects life difficulties help get messages across to our children that verbal words for parents, kids just don’t get.

Over the past couple weeks my son and I have been watching football movies to help motivate him for the upcoming season.  Although I’m listing 3, there are numerous movies related to football on Netflix, but here’s the 3 Movies I want to share with you.

23 Blast

Life takes a complete turn for Travis Freeman when this student athlete contracts an infection that almost ends his high school football career.  With so much going for Travis, after this infection leaves him blind he becomes depressed and nearly gives up on life.  When Travis’ coach thinks he can still play for the team despite being blind, Travis has to overcome his fear of failure.

Woodlawn

Who’d think that a football team can use some hope, love and reconciliation?  Well, that’s exactly what the Woodlawn High Football team needed.  Myself being born in the early 70’s and not knowing the racial tension that was taking place in America.  Tony Nathan was in the heart of this racial tension and had to overcome it on and off the field.  One thing for sure, Tony had parents that were rooted and grounded in their faith and raised him to trust in God.

Gridiron

This one here is a different type of inspiration….  That’s what I call it.  Don’t get me wrong, it can and will inspire your student athlete that’s on the right path.  However, if you’re looking to motivate a teenager that may not be an athlete, headed in the wrong direction or a child you’re concerned about.  Gridiron is a good one!

The Rock, plays a juvenile detention counselor, that gets fed up with the lifestyle pattern the kids take after leaving the detention center.  The pattern of release, death or returning to the detention center.  The Rock starts a football team with the youth in the center with a goal to help build their self esteem, self control and hope.

These are all great movies to sit down with your teenagers and watch.

Until then, this kid will get his sleep.

Mama Minute: What’s in my Football Mom Cooler Bag on Practice Days?

This week’s Mama Minute… What’s in my Football Mom Cooler Bag on Practice Days. Taking a cooler bag on practice day is beneficial for many reasons and here’s my top 3 reasons.

1. Saves you money
2. We know what our children are eating.
3. They can replenish right after practice.

  I make sure I carry something in the cooler bag for everyone. Practice is a couple ours and in order to make sure I’m not spending money on unnecessary items like, water, snacks and food, I pack something for everyone. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve bought my daughter food out and she doesn’t eat everything. Such a waste.

For mom:
I pack a drink and something to eat. Snack bar, soup yogurt or sandwich.
For the football player:
On practice days I have my son drink water, sandwiches and a couple snacks. He’s always so hungry after practice.
For my daughter:
I pack her a sandwich too, a couple snacks, fruit and a small drink. My goal is to limit our public restroom use EWWWW.

Hope you received some great tips by taking a look in my practice cooler bag. Do you carry a cooler bag to your child’s practice and what’s in it?
