Victorious! is the story of Sacred Heart-Griffin coach Ken Leonard, the winningest high school football coach in Illinois history, and his son, Derek, who won eight state championships in a 10-year period at Rochester, an unprecedented feat at a public school in Illinois. USA Today named Ken the National High School Coach of the Year for all sports in 2022. Even more compelling than the behind-the-scenes look at those championship runs and near-misses is the faith journey of the Leonard family, a story of tragedy, triumph and finding salvation in a barber shop.
