Last Miracle for Lavell
Last Miracle for LaVell -- a documentary produced by Kevin Mitchell highlighting the final season of legendary Coach LaVell Edwards. LaVell Edwards remains a legend in the world of college football. His legacy includes a national championship, 20 conference titles and 22 bowl games. Now, in an exclusive peek behind the scenes, insider Kevin Mitchell documents LaVell's final season, as he faces his first losing campaign in 27 years.


Last Miracle for LaVell is a behind-the-scenes look at the 6th-winningest football coach in NCAA Division 1 history. His last year was reminiscent of his 29 years as BYU's head football coach. His teaching style never wavered, and in private and off the field his stoic game face brought a smile to everyone he touched.

His final team wanted to send him out with a national championship or another major bowl bid, but an overwhelming travel schedule, injuries and inexperience almost resulted in just his second losing season of his career.

Led by the determination of Brandon Doman and clutch catches by Jonathan Pittman, the Cougars gave LaVell one last miracle versus arch rival Utah. A tribute to a coach who looked for miracles and found them, in his players, in his coaches on his way to taking BYU Football into national prominence.
