Inspired by true events, “When The Game Stands Tall” is the story of the De La Salle High School (Concord, Calif.) football team posting the longest winning streak in football history.

In fact, it was a rather one-sided thrashing delivered by a team that should be considered among one of the best squads of all time, certainly the best since the Michael Jordan era of the 1990s. But though the games may have not been full of buzzer beaters and dunks, the relevancy of the Spurs’ run at the title will echo throughout the expansive halls basketball history due to the unique nature of the team.
