Ravens take in 'When the Game Stands Tall' football movie at team headquarters

Ravens watch the movie "When the Game Stands Tall" on Friday afternoon at team headquarters.

The Ravens' players took in a movie Friday afternoon at their training complex, watching the high school football movie "When the Game Stands Tall."

The Ravens had an earlier practice Friday morning before watching the movie, which is about the record-setting De La Salle football team from Concord, Calif., which had a record-setting 151-game winning streak from 1992 to 2003.

The movie, which stars Jim Caviezel as coach Bob Ladouceur, was adapted from a 2003 book. It deals with the adversity the team faced, including the tragic shooting death of player Terrance Kelly, Ladoucer dealing with health issues and how the team reacts to its winning streak ending.

Among the many NFL players who've attended De La Salle: Oakland Raiders running back Maurice Jones-Drew, Chicago Bears linebacker D.J. Williams, former Ravens wide receiver Demetrius Williams, Denver Broncos safety T.J. Ward and former New York Giants wide receiver Amani Toomer.
