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.

Technically I go nuts this time of year!

[media-credit id=1 align=”alignleft” width=”150″][/media-credit]I know I’ve talked about my husband going overboard in his garden…..but…I’m not far from him. I spent some time yesterday planting some annuals in pots. There’s a few garden centers I love to go to for ideas. However, the arrangements are a bit pricey for me. They cost around $59.95 with a variety of annuals. So, what I do is go to the centers and get ideas. Here’s one I worked on yesterday. This picture to the left is my inspiration.  Sorry the shot isn’t clearer. I have to take a picture of a picture on my hubby’s phone.  Look closely and you’ll see the basket handle on top.

I started with my basket.  This is one that I already had.  I lined it with plastic and punched holes in it for drainage.

Then I picked up a variety of annuals from Wal-Mart

Next I placed them in my basket to see which ones will go in the basket.

Last, I removed them from their containers,  placed them in the basket and added some potting soil.  I’ll show some pics in a few weeks when everything fills in.  So, tell me what do you think.  Did I get close to my inspiration?  Have you created any potting arrangements this year?  If you have them on you blog let me know, I’d love to see them.
