Join an average family on their extraordinary journey through grief, hope and miraculous restoration.
When 15-year-old Luke Abbate is killed in a tragic car accident, his older brother and college football star, Jon, doubts he will ever be able to return to the field. But as Jon slowly comes to terms with his own grief and his struggling relationship with God, he vows to dedicate the 2006 football season to the memory of Luke. By adopting his brother’s former jersey number and working harder than ever before, Jon inspires his fellow players to become the most improved college team in America – and finds himself playing his heart out in a championship game nobody thought he could reach.
The 5th Quarter is an inspiring and heartwarming true story about the love of a family, the support of a community and the incredible difference that one life can make.
