Jose: An Underdog Story (Jeremy Lin)

By Vineworker - JubileeProject On November 26, 2013

What would you do if Jeremy Lin surprised you with a game of pickup basketball?

In September, Jubilee Project had the honor of meeting José, a remarkable young man who overcame the struggles of growing up in one of the most dangerous districts in San Francisco.

Jeremy Lin's Linsanity - Launches DVD Jan. 7, Preorders Dec. 12  

This is a story of an underdog who found strength, hope and joy in an unlikely place—in his pain and suffering. Through basketball and faith in God, José learns to embrace the journey he has been on, just as his role model Jeremy Lin has done in his own incredible circumstances in the NBA.

Through his struggle and pain, Jose found hope, joy, and strength. In 140 characters, tweet us your biggest struggle so that we can send you a note of encouragement. Make sure to tag @jubileeproject and include #jp_underdog.
