“McFarland” was never just about a cross country track team. It was never about just getting out of poverty. It is about character and discovering who you really are. It is a journey that simply continued for the Dias boys but along another path provided by Coach White. For Thomas, it was a chance to make a difference in lives similar yet different from his own. Victor made his choices and used that experience in his life. For Coach White it was seeing through different eyes, the same things we all value, the importance below the surface.
