* CrowningMomentOfFunny: Grant is standing on the field coaching. He's oblivious to a team member tackling his assistant coach and [[FunnyBackgroundEvent said coach getting up and chasing said player]].
** The Abbot-and-Costello-esque HistoricalCharacterConfusion sequence.
** The African-American assistant coach ends up spending an entire scene doing a preacher-esque talk about "wide way vs. narrow gate" in reference to kicking a field goal, even stating "It don't have to look pretty; it don't have to look smooth. It can look like a dying duck!" at one point, while the white assistant coach responds to his points in the same way a stereotypical African-American church body would (which got confusion in the Northern states but hysterical laughter in the South). Ultimately Grant comes over and says to David "I've never heard it put that way but there's a lot of truth to what he's saying."

* GrowingTheBeard: For Sherwood Pictures (just look at their initial film project, ''Flywheel'', by comparison) and Christian films in general, at least as far as production values are concerned. Say what you will, but this film looks and feels almost like a Hollywood studio production, as opposed to a stereotypical "church basement" flick.

* CrowningMomentOfAwesome: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T_wyBftd8gk The Death Crawl Scene]]. [[spoiler: In the words of Grant Taylor: "You just carried a hundred and forty pound man across this ''whole'' field on your ''arms''!"]]

* AuthorTract: It's not just a Christian movie but produced and financed by a Baptist church, so this is pretty much inevitable.


* MostAnnoyingSound: During the [[{{Narm}} infamous]] Death Crawl scene, the coach pulls this off. Some of the lines Grant says are the same and borders on him sounding like an actual video game character.
