Director Statement

As incredible as Rondé Barber was on the football field, he is even more impressive as a human being. His life-long relationship with "the odds" turned him into the ultimate underdog story, and an inspiration to anyone who knows his path to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

It's worth noting: Rondé never watched this piece until the movie premiered on September 20th. I am grateful to have earned his trust and friendship, during the time spent together.

I hope you enjoy the work.
