The inspiring and award-winning documentary profiling the incredible career - both on and off the field - of three-time National Champion and University of Texas football coaching legend, Darrell Royal. Narrated by Matthew McConaughey and hosted by Cactus Pryor, the documentary features country music stars Willie Nelson and Larry Gatlin, Texas football greats Earl Campbell and James Street, ABC Sports' Keith Jackson, President George W. Bush, current Longhorn head coach Mack Brown and the legend himself, Darrell Royal. The Dallas Morning News calls it "Excellent!"; The Fort Worth Star Telegram says its "A Must See!"; and KLIF Radio calls it "Perhaps the most touching, heart-felt and well done story ever told from the ranks of college football!" Winner of Telly Award for Best Sports Documentary, Communicator Award for Best Sports Documentary, and Accolade Award for Best Sports Film. Proceeds benefit Mike Campbell Scholarship Fund at the University of Texas.
