Marshall University: Ashes to Glory

2000 NR

In 1979, a plane carrying the Marshall University football team crashed, leaving no survivors. This film documents how a young coach and the five remaining players achieved one of the most heroic comebacks of all time. Combining archival footage with interviews of individuals close to the tragedy, Ashes to Glory tells a tale of remarkable courage in the face of adversity, in the process honoring the memory of those who perished.
