The upcoming film "We are Marshall" tells a story that we felt you should be aware of - a story that we believe will resonate with fans of college athletics. It deals with the impact that sports has on all
of our lives. It is what Rivals.com is about on many levels.
The movie tells the true story of how the town of Huntington, W. Va., dealt with great loss and devastation following the worst sports disaster in the history of the United States.
This isn't necessarily a football story. It's about getting back up when you've been knocked down, dusting yourself off and pushing forward through adversity.
It's a story about perseverance, one to which we can all relate.
Earlier this month, the Scholar Athlete Awards, presented by Warner Bros. Pictures and Rivals.com, were given to six high school seniors from across the nation who have
demonstrated exemplary achievement in athletics, academics and community service. A key component of the selection process was an essay in which applicants were asked to describe how
participation in sports has helped them succeed in school and in life. In addition to receiving college scholarships, the winners were the guests of Warner Bros. Pictures at the Dec. 14 Hollywood
premiere of "We Are Marshall."
