You’ll Never Amount to Anything Roy!
Roy’s average life has been loaded with unfulfilled promise. Now, with a cough that won’t go away and terrible news from his doctor, he has one last chance to fulfill his childhood dream.
The doctor’s news is the worst thing Roy has heard since his year-four teacher told him he would never amount to anything. And tragically, Roy has believed that teacher his whole life. Now nearly 70 years old, Roy has limited time and resources to put those echoing words of his teacher to rest and do what he’s always dreamed of: playing soccer professionally.
Roy is loved, but alone. His passion for sports is matched only by the failures of his teams. In this heart-warming underdog tale, Roy falls in love and takes his beleaguered soccer team on the ride of its life, all against the better judgment of those who love him the most.
