Longshots 2008

Based on a true story, Curtis Plummer is a down-on-his-luck former high school football star that turns his niece, Jasmine, into the quarterback of the local team. He becomes the team’s coach after the current coach becomes ill. With Curtis as their coach and Jasmine at QB, the team of misfits wins its way to the Pop Warner Super Bowl, but it does not come easy. Along with being accepted by her all male teammates, her deadbeat father re-appears after news stories and she struggles with his return. Jasmine eventually figures out her uncle is the one who truly cares. She not admires her uncle, but honors him by wearing his old jersey number, #11.
