At first viewing, this trailer’s opening sequence seems a bit odd. It’s an ESPN documentary on Steve Spurrier, but half of the video is spent juxtaposing the HBC to a preacher.
But then you take a step back and think of the miracles he worked at Duke and South Carolina. How at UF he was the Golden Boy long before Tim Tebow was even a glimmer in his momma’s eye. And how every podium is like his personal pulpit, and every interview a sermon.
The film is titled “The Believer,” which, after considering Spurrier’s body of work, sounds like a fitting name.
