“23 BLAST”

In Theaters October 24th, 2014

23 Blast is based on the amazingly true story
of Travis Freeman. A typical teenager growing
up in a small town in Kentucky, Travis is a local
hero on and off the field. In the fall of 1997, in
the prime of his youth, he is unexpectedly
stricken with an infection that destroys his
optic nerve. He becomes blind overnight.
Under the influence of parents who love him,
a physical therapist who challenges him, a
coach who inspires him, and a best friend
who he cannot bear to leave him behind, Travis
shows us what true bravery is by competing
on the gridiron and helping his team advance
to the State playoffs.
