    The true-life story of Olympic soccer player Kurt Kuykendall is told in this riveting drama starring Jason Burkey (October Baby).

    After the death of his older brother, Kurt tries to make everyone happy. But faced with the rejection of his perfectionist father, his mother’s crippling alcoholism, and his own failure to make it as a college basketball player, Kurt is driven to an emotional and spiritual crossroad. Then at the bidding of an insistent friend, Kurt reluctantly tries out for his fraternity’s soccer team, even though he had never played competitive soccer in his life! To everyone’s surprise, he becomes an overnight sensation. Buoyed by his girlfriend, Sherry (Chelsie Casagrande), and other friends, Kurt trains hard all summer for the Division I team. In time, his skill as goalkeeper leads him all the way to represent the USA in the Olympics.

    For the Glory shows how God’s intervention turns failure into triumph in ways we can’t begin to imagine.

    “For the Glory is a great movie. Is has all the right stuff for a good sport drama – an underdog who strives to give his all to achieve his dreams, several tension points that threaten Kurt’s plans, and lots of sport action, including training sequences as well as footage from the actual soccer games.” –Christian Film Guide (Click here for complete review)
