Wade Phillips and his wife Lori attended the kickoff party for One Heart Project at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington Monday night.
The One Heart Project is aimed at helping at-risk and incarcerated youth a second chance.
The event is attached to the theatrical release of the "One Heart" movie based on the real-life story of the 2008 game between Gainesville State School and Grapevine Faith.
"This game was the single greatest exhibition of sportsmanship I have ever witnesses or heard about," Wade Phillips told One Heart.
The football game with real life lessons was covered by NBC 5's Matt Barrie and Noah Bullard and won a National Edward R. Murrow award for sports reporting and a Lone Star Emmy award for feature news report.
