The events in this dramatic true story took place in November 1970. In a tragic air disaster: seventy-five people are killed – including entire Marshall University football team, and their popular no-nonsense coach, Rick
Trolley (Robert Patrick.)

Pressurised by families and friends of the crash victims who opt to wallow in their own self-pity, like old man Paul Griffen (Ian McShane), whose son was aboard the ’plane: the University President, Donald Dedmon (David Strathairn) at first opts to cancel the football programme. But such is the heart of the Marshall university students and the townspeople of Huntington alike, that he soon appoints a new coach in young Jack Lengyl (Matthew McConaughy) who, capably aided by his deputy, Red Dawson (Matthew Fox), is given the task of putting together a whole new football team! Because of the average age of the players, who are mainly freshmen: they opt to call themselves, “The Young Thundering Herd.”

Not dissimilar to Facing the Giants in several respects: the actual plane crash is most effectively done…because we don’t actually get to see it! Rather, our imagination is left to cope with the situation. (Alfred Hitchcock used a similar tack in his horror classic, Psycho.)
Drama set in Huntingdon, West Virginia, telling the true story of Marshall University's 'Thunder Herd' football team. For the team and the community, Marshall football is more than just a sport: it's a way of life. But on a fateful night in 1970, while travelling back to Huntingdon after a game in North Carolina, 75 members of Marshall's football team and coaching staff were killed in a plane crash. As those left behind struggled to cope with the devastating loss of their loved ones, the grieving families found hope and strength in the leadership of Jack Lengyel (Matthew McConaughey), a young coach who was determined to rebuild Marshall's football programme and, in the process, help to heal a community.
