Blockbuster season prompts casting call
The arrival of summer blockbuster season at local multiplexes made us plan our own casting call.
We wanted to know what real-life college athletes best fit the fictional and real-life characters who have appeared in some prominent football and basketball movies.
Who would "Blue Chips" coach Pete Bell turn to if he had to put together an all-star roster that didn't include Shaquille O'Neal or Penny Hardaway?
Which recent college quarterback made us think of Jonathan Moxon from "Varsity Blues" or Mike Winchell of "Friday Night Lights" fame?
And who is this generation's Rudy Ruettiger?
After watching a week's worth of sports films, we think we've found our matches. As you look at our cast, you'll see the similarities we found between our real-life athletes and their counterparts on the silver screen.
