Something magical took place between August and November of 1991 in Central Pennsylvania, in the tiny community of Penns Valley. It is something that cannot be explained and something that will not be forgotten with the passage of time. A thirty-six member football team, a coach and a dream was all it took to transcend the 'Valley' and Central Pennsylvania from believing they couldn't...to believing they can. This is the inspiring tale of the 1991-1992 Penns Valley Rams. This tale isn't new, it has been told in countless stories throughout the beginning of time. It is the story of the under privileged, overworked and underappreciated fighting against the corporation, the privileged, the machine. It is the story of 'us' versus 'them' and David versus Goliath. It is Rocky versus Apollo and all other stereotypical and mythical 'cannot win' scenarios. Above all else it is the true story of what happens when you stop thinking about yourself and start believing in each other. Yet, what makes this story unique is how football success can translate to success in life for those who are willing to apply the lessons learned and continue on that magical path. Just as with any worthwhile endeavor, there will be a plethora of obstacles to overcome and many occasions of getting knocked down. However, this story is about how you rise back up from that fall. As Confucius once proclaimed, "Our greatest glory consists not in never falling, but rising every time we fall."
