125 attend special movie preview, discussion

About 125 students attended Wednesday’s special showing of the movie “When the Game Stands Tall,” which features the true and remarkable story of the De La Salle High School from Concord, Calif.

This recently released movie features the journey of legendary football coach Bob Ladouceur, who took the De La Salle High School Spartans from obscurity to a 151-game winning streak that shattered all records for any American sport.

A panel discussion (including faculty members Dean Beckman and Joe Tadie and coaches Jen Miller, Jenna Sullivan, and David Barry) revolved around relationships that make a difference in our lives, the parallels between the concept of being on team and in a community, and that “We Lasallians” are successfully competitive.

This event was a team collaboration of the Student Activity Committee, the Living Learning Community Wide World and Sports, and the Athletic Department.
