Narrated by Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights, Battleship, Savages and Lone Survivor). “Gridiron Heroes” is the story of high school football star Chris Canales, who was paralyzed in a championship football game. The film chronicles the work of the Gridiron Heroes Spinal Cord Injury Foundation started by Chris and his father Eddie. “Gridiron Heroes” is also an examination of the game of football itself. Some of the most famous faces in the game discuss the larger problem of brain damage and spinal cord injuries that occur on the football field and a solution, “Heads up Tackling,” is presented.
