The inspirational true story of how one man led a football team-and a city- to triumph in Super Bowl XLIV.
In the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, the New Orleans Superdome became a national symbol of misery and hopelessness, where the truly desperate rode out the storm.
Four years later, in that very stadium, the New Orleans Saints won the NFC championship and earned their first-ever trip to the Super Bowl.
Two weeks later, the Saints soundly defeated the heavily favored Indianapolis Colts 31-17 in what would become the most-watched television event in history.
This is the inspirational story of a city recovering from disaster and a team with a history of heartbreak, seen through the eyes of the coach who taught them both how to win.
Sean Payton is the head coach of the Super Bowl Champion New Orleans Saints.
Ellis Henican is a columnist for Newsday and an analyst on the Fox News Channel.
