Finding Freddie

“Come home. Shave your beard, cut your hair,” the message read. “You’re auditioning to play your dad.”

As compelling as this is—the son becoming the father—this is not James’ story. It is Freddie Steinmark’s story, and Juston and James Street, ’70, Life Member, are just two supporting characters in the epic production of the film that is, as of press time, titled My All American.

The basis for the movie, which is slated to hit theaters this winter, is an inspiring true UT story that—inexplicably—has never been told on film before. It’s a sports story, but, as everyone knows, the best sports stories aren’t really about sports.
