In the fall of 1970, a plane went down in the hills of West Virginia. Seventy-five lives were lost in the tragic accident, among them were the majority of Marshall University's football team and coaching staff. Often called "The Worst Tragedy in American Sports" (despite Mike Tyson's attempt to wrestle that title away), this disaster provides the genesis for the film "We Are Marshall".

Following the tragic events of Fall 1970, Marshall decided it could best honor the fallen team by continuing on the program. "We Are Marshall" dramatizes the inspirational story of Coach Jack Lengyel (Matthew McConaughey), who was hired the following season to rebuild a decimated football program. (Kyle Kunitake/BOP)
