LOUISVILLE, Ky. (SBTS) -- When Travis Freeman lost his eyesight in high school, his chances of playing football were destroyed.

The film, "23 Blast," based on Freeman's journey after contracting bacterial meningitis, releases today (Oct. 24) in 600 theaters across the country. "The movie isn't the Travis Freeman story," Freeman, a two-time Southern Baptist Theological Seminary graduate, said. "It does a really good job capturing the spirit of my story. I want people to be encouraged whether by watching the movie, 23 Blast, or reading the book, or following me on Twitter or hearing me speak."
