The 5th Quarter

Thanks to Maryann Abbate for taking time to talk with us this week about  “The 5th Quarter” a new movie based on her family.

The 5th Quarter is a true story of faith, family, football, and triumph over tragedy. You may remember the story – Luke Abbate was a 15 year old who in his untimely death was able to give the gift of life as an organ donor. Luke’s life inspired his brother Jon to lead Wake Forest University to their first ever championship football season
