As football season kicks off, here’s a real life story from the gridiron that goes beyond anything I have heard of. “The Sacred Acre ” chronicles the life of football Coach Ed Thomas and his murder by a former student who was suffering from a long bout with mental illness.
In the aftermath of this tragedy, Thomas’s son has taken over coaching in his dad’s place and he along with the rest of his family and the family of the shooter, Mark Becker, are now sharing a story of reconciliation and redemption.
In fact, “‘Sacred Acre” is one of the most amazing portraits of community you will read in a long time. Don’t miss out on this inspiring story.
