    After seeing the trailer for this film I am almost sure i have seen this before a few years back. I could be very wrong but something clicked when i saw the trailer, so have i seen it before? Is there a very similar movie? Maybe i am mixing it up with something else, but what i remember is that the coach takes the lad ubder his arms, people start talking and saying he's losing it, daughter even starts on him, but the lad comes through.

    All very confusing and IMDB dont help any.

    Maybe you are thinking of The Waterboy?:

    I first heard of the "Radio" in the 2003 movie a few years ago in a bar in Belfast. An American singer called Chuck Brodsky wrote a song about him, and gives a brief background to the story of the song each time he sings it. I believe he appears as an extra in a scene. He has met both the Coach and Radio a few times over the years and says the movie is a fairly accurate presentation overall.
