Kairos is the true story of Matt Frantz, who despite having no real high school football experience decided to scale one of college footballs highest peaks by becoming a member of the Ohio State Buckeyes. After being rejected for two straight years,MoreKairos is the true story of Matt Frantz, who despite having no real high school football experience decided to scale one of college footballs highest peaks by becoming a member of the Ohio State Buckeyes.

After being rejected for two straight years, he relied only on his determination and obsession to wear the Scarlet and Gray by kicking 100 footballs every day until he earned a roster spot. What separates this story from any other is that he did more than just wear the uniform, he actually became a contributing member of the 1986-87 Ohio State Buckeyes by leading the team in scoring both seasons. After going from fifth string walk-on to starting place-kicker and helping the team to nine straight wins, Matt Frantz stood poised and ready to complete his dream by booting the final points through the goal posts, securing not only a victory over their arch rival, the Michigan Wolverines, but an outright Big Ten Championship and a trip to the Rose Bowl.

Forty-six yards and three seconds later, the ball sailed wide of the goal posts. His miss not only punched the Wolverines ticket to the Rose Bowl, but would be the start of the longest, loneliest year of his young life. It was a moment witnessed by millions, but experienced by only one.

Not willing to allow the magnitude of that moment to define him or his career, Matt found a way to resurrect himself, and twelve months later had the opportunity to again deliver the winning points against Ohio States arch rival. Think about the number of kids who grow up playing pee-wee and high school football, dreaming of playing in that game...Then think about the odds of a kid with the least experience taking center stage on college footballs biggest venue.....Twice!
