Laurence Fishburne Is A Surrogate Father To A Football Team In Preview For 'Under The Stadium Lights'

Shadow and Act has an exclusive preview of the upcoming film Under The Stadium Lights, which stars Laurence Fishburne.

The film is based on the real-life true story of a small-town high school football team who beat all the odds to win their state championship.

The official description reads: After a crushing defeat ended their prior season, everyone counted the Abilene Eagles out of title contention. Facing doubts and personal challenges both on and off the field, it will take the guidance of their team chaplain (Milo Gibson) and a surrogate father figure (Fishburne) for them to realize what they can achieve when they stand united as a team. In this uplifting underdog story, the Abilene Eagles will once again soar in an incredible comeback that will be forever remembered in sports history.

Aside from Gibson and Fishburne, the film also stars Abigail Hawk, Acoryé White, Carter Redwood, Germain Arroyo, Adrian Favela, Eddie George, Glenn Morshower and Noel G.
