They Call Me Sirr is a 2001 documentary that tells the story of a young football player who was able to beat the odds stacked against him to become one of college football's top student-athletes. Sirr Parker (Kente Parker) begins his life living in a tough area of South Central Los Angeles and everywhere he turns, there is temptations for drugs and gang affiliation. To make matters worse, his mother is an alcoholic who abandoned him as a child and he is raised by various relatives. Despite his trials, Sirr manages to excel on the field and in the classroom by earning USA Today All-American honors with 3.9 grade point average throughout high school. Without a father, there is one constant in his life, and that is the love and support of his high school football coach, Griffin (Michael Clarke Duncan). As he entered college, Sirr excels on the field once again leading the Texas A&M Aggies to the 1998 Big 12 Conference Championship, all while helping to raise his younger brother. The hard work paid off as Sirr earned the shot to play football in the National Football League, proving hard work and determination can give anyone a chance to triumph over adversity.moreless
