You’ve got to see this VIDEO … “Season of Lifetime” trailer #2 with Greenville High football coach Jeremy Williams

Another trailer on Greenville High football coach Jeremy Williams from the “Season of a Lifetime” documentary has been released.

The clip features interviews with the coach with the terminal illness of ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease, along with family members such as his wife, brother and mother.

The “Season of a Lifetime” documentary is the vision of Atlanta filmmaker Rick Cohen as a joint venture between FishEye Media Inc. and Endorphin Entertainment. It is a work in progress, as Cohen and his crew will follow the Greenville Patriots during the upcoming football season. Greenville will be one of the top contenders again for the Class A state championship.

Cohen hopes to have a finished product to view in April 2011.

This is the second of 5-6 trailers which will be released over the next several months. The first one, which gets me teary-eyed every time I see it, follows Williams in his return to Memphis University, where he was a four-year starter for the football team. Memphis has named its Spring Game MVP Award in honor of Williams.

“The response to the [first trailer] was amazing from people who know Jeremy’s story,” Cohen said. “They look at themselves and say ‘Life isn’t so bad. He is living life to the fullest. I need to do the same.’ Jeremy is an inspiration to so many people, and we’re honored to help tell his story.”

    I’ve tried to follow Jeremy’s story from afar up here in Virginia ever since I first saw him on Extreme Home Makeover. Man I know what you mean about getting teary-eyed. These trailers really tear me up inside. I’ll definitely be pulling for the guy and the team he coaches this season.

    God bless Jeremy and his wonderful family! I have a picture of my son who was a senior LBer for our high school and Jacob together after our game with Greenville and I will always cherish it.
