Movie Details

This made-for-TV drama is based on the remarkable true story of Sirr Parker, who rose from a childhood of crippling poverty, a broken home, and one of the most dangerous neighborhoods in America to become a high school honor student, a football star and academic success at Texas A&M, and a rising star in the NFL. They Call Me Sirr features Michael Clarke Duncan as Coach Griffin, who guided Sirr's gridiron success in high school, and Kente Scott as the young Parker. Produced simply as Sirr, They Call Me Sir was first aired on the Showtime premium cable network. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
