In an effort to inspire young athletes both on and off the field, Kenny Chesney is offering a free DVD copy of ‘Boys of Fall,’ his 90-minute documentary about the lasting, positive impact high school football has on players throughout their lives, to high schools and high school football coaches around the US.

In the documentary, Chesney interviews dozens of football’s most successful commentators, coaches and players, including Joe Namath, Peyton Manning, Tony Dungy and Nick Saban, but the focus of the film is truly on life lessons learned by all who participate, not just those who go on to future football success.

“Kenny played high school football, and he feels the lessons learned on the field like hard work, humility and trust are carried over into everyday life,” says Chesney’s manager Clint Higham. “He wants to help inspire future generations with the same passion he feels.”

The first 10,000 schools to mail a letter on school letterhead requesting the documentary by December 31, 2010 will receive a copy of the DVD. One DVD is available per high school. Letters should be sent to:

Kenny Chesney
P.O. Box 121895
2006 Acklen Ave
Nashville, TN 37212

Chesney’s hope is that the documentary will inspire students as much as he was during his high school playing days and when he made the film, and that they take away from their playing experience lessons that helped Chesney become one of hardest working and most successful artists in music today. The DVD will be able to live on with teams or in school libraries for future generations to enjoy.

If you’d like to buy a copy of the documentary, you can get it at Walmart.com for $11.88.

    FOr our last pep rally I made a “Boys of Fall” for our own 3A HS, less than 500 students, I created a wonderful DVD with my Mac and Coach Pre did the intro that plays just like a regular DVD till you hit Play. Everyone wants a copy. I am a senior Mom and involved in Project Graduation, where we raise money to pay for the night of graduation.

    May we sell the DVD I made that has the 8:19 min from Kennys Commentators and song I used for the back ground. All photo’s and videos are Llano HS mom’s. IT is excellent and our board of Project Graduation says we can not sell it.

    How may we get permission to sell what I made using the 8:19 music in the background? Can I give it away? I’d like to raise $ for project graduation, and it would be a great stocking stuffer.
