“I was actually going to stop working as an actor and just direct only,” he told the Christian Post. “After ‘Fences,’ I was done. My manager said, ‘I’ll send it (the script) to you.’ And I read it and was like, ‘Wow, OK. All right. I’m in.’”

In the faith based sports drama,  Williamson stars as Coach Hailey, an important voice of encouragement to two teens facing an emotional and spiritual battle.

The actor also discussed his faith.

“Well, my whole life, my personal life, the wife that I have, the children I have, the career that I have, the creativity that comes to me and flows through me, is all the result of being prayed up and having a faith walk. That’s what it is, that’s all it is,” Williamson shared.
