ABOUT 23 BLAST
This film is inspired by the true story of Travis Freeman. Travis (played by Mark Hapka) plays high school football in a small town in Kentucky. He is loved by his local community, not just for his skills on the field, but for being an all-around great guy. In 1997, Travis contracts an infection and overnight he becomes blind. He thought his dreams of playing the game was over, but he overcomes many challenges with the help of his parents, physical therapist, coach, and best friend. He was able to get back on the field and help his team get to the state finals.
You all know I love a feel-good movie, and this is definitely one of those. While the events in the film did not happen exactly the way they did in real life, Travis Freeman did in fact have an unshakeable faith after he became blind. Stories like this is always welcomed over what is typically shown on the big screen targeting young people today. You can read about where Travis is today, and his thoughts about the movie HERE.
