'My All-American' trailer about former DB Freddie Steinmark

  Aaron Eckhart stars as the Texas Longhorns football coach.

On Nov. 13, a movie paying tribute to former Texas defensive back Freddie Steinmark, titled "My All-American" will be released.

Steinmark was a defensive back for the 1969 national champion Longhorns, and his story was nothing short of tragic.

In June of 1971, Steinmark passed away. That was just two years after playing in the "Game of the Century" against Arkansas. Two days after the memorable bout, X-rays revealed a bone tumor just above Steinmark's left knee. A biopsy confirmed the tumor was malignant and Steinmark's leg was amputated.

But before all of that, Steinmark endured a grand journey just to get to the University of Texas in the first place. The trailer is below, and the movie looks like it has a lot of potential. Take a sneak peak at "My-All American."

Could this be the next "Rudy?" The next "Glory Road?" Time will tell.
