* [[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}}'').

* PutMeInCoach

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.

* ArcWords: "Win or lose...we give God the glory."


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.

* YoudBetterSitDown: Coach Grant Taylor gets a call informing him that his team will be allowed into the playoffs after all because the team they lost to in the last game cheated. You only hear Grant's end of the conversation, but he repeats the callers question of "Am I sitting down?" with obvious confusion.
