CLEVELAND, OHIO, USA, April 16, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — The inspirational true story of Caden Cox will soon be brought to the big screen. Caden overcame widespread obstacles and stigmas to become the first person with Down syndrome to play and score in a college football game. His unwavering determination and love for the game are showcased in Kickin’ It, the film adaptation of Caden Cox’s true-life story and his incredible achievement.

“Caden is a remarkable young man, and his story needed to be told,” said Jay Paul Deratany, a Chicago-based attorney who is also a playwright and screenwriter. “I was thrilled to write the screenplay for Kickin’ It and share Caden’s journey and tremendous accomplishment,” he added. “Despite his disability and the many naysayers, Caden persevered and followed his dream to play college football. Not only did he play, but he became an extra point kicker with an almost perfect record. He’s a true champion in my eyes.”

While casting is still in the works, the Kickin’ It production team has been quietly scouting locations for filming throughout Cleveland, as well as Nelsonville, Ohio’s Hocking College campus, where Caden played football and scored with his winning kick.

It’s about overcoming obstacles and following your dreams,” he added. “Caden fought for what he believed and what he wanted. His story and his passion moved us, and I have no doubt that others will feel the same.”
