* [[CastTheExpert Hire the Expert]]: Regarding the football scenes; it helps that director of photography Bob Scott and sound technician Rob Whitehurst were available to volunteer (both having worked for NFL Films for the majority of their careers; and the two would later work on future Sherwood Pictures films ''Film/{{Fireproof}}'' and ''Film/{{Courageous}}'').

to:

* PutMeInCoachPutMeInCoach: During the film; David Childers is generally used in spot duty kicking short field goals. Then the regular kicker gets hurt in the championship game; forcing Shiloh to invoke this trope.


Added DiffLines:

* UnnecessaryRoughness: During the championship game; the Giants commit a ''very'' blatant roughing the kicker penalty that results in Shiloh's regular kicker forced to miss the rest of the game with an injury; resulting in David Childers being used as kicker the rest of the way.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Reconstruction}}: Of sorts, for the super-clichéd "Little Team Of Failures Becomes Motivated Team Of Champions" storyline for sports films in general, and football films in particular. The goods are delivered--but here, the motivation come from newfound faith, in Kierkegaard-esque fashion.
