Alice B. from SANDY, UT
Reviewed on 8/26/2013...
This is a great story and true.In 1964, Bobbie Dean is a girl who passes as a boy to play great basket ball.She takes the team to a state championship, and unites them so they win. Only girls are not allowed to be on a boys basketball team in 1964. Bobbie's team wins, but an official disqualifies her from playing because he finds out that she is a girl. A higher official intervenes and Bobbie Dean as an adult becomes a woman coach for men's basket ball.This is a wonderful story about overcoming sexual discrimination and prejudices, forgiveness, persistence, optimism, acceptance, disapproval, stereotyping and risk. This is a clean family movie. You can be proud to show this movie to your family and children.
