Steve Rocker, one of the most successful high school basketball coaches in Kentucky’s history, is about to enter into the most difficult season of his career. With expectations at an all-time high, his players have lost their will to win and their passion for the game; none of Coach Rocker’s tried and true motivational methods are working, and he doesn’t know why. As the season continues to spiral downward and his home life begins to mirror the problems he’s facing on the court, Coach Rocker stumbles upon a most unlikely mentor-Joe Taylor, the school’s janitor, who seems to have the answers to all of the Coach’s problems. A committed Christian with a heart for serving others, Joe helps the Coach turn his season around and reconnect not only with his with his players, but also with his wife and children. He ultimately helps him realize that his true purpose in life is not to win games, set records, or achieve personal acclaim, but rather to influence others by leading like Jesus did-from the heart, putting others first.
