"We Are Marshall"


That's the home of Marshall University, whose 1970 football team died in what some call the worst disaster in sports history. 36 years ago, the Marshall team was headed home to West Virginia from Greenville, after a loss to ECU. The Marshall plane crashed, killing all 75 team members, coaches and fans on board. The movie focuses on the tragedy, and how a young Marshall coach, played by actor Matthew McConaughey, brought hope to the devastated school and community. We will have much more from the Huntington premiere, Tuesday on WITN-7 News at Six.
