Balls Out: Gary the Tennis Coach is an American film directed by Danny Leiner and stars Seann William Scott, Randy Quaid and Leonor Varela. The film was filmed mostly in the Austin, Texas area and Taylor, Texas. The movie was released on January 13, 2009.[1]



The fictional film is set in Lincoln, Nebraska. The writers Rick Stempson and Andy Stock are both Lincoln (Neb.) 1990 East High School graduates.

Many scenes in the movie were filmed with actual Texas high schools and actual high school Tennis teams. One of the Taylor, Texas locations is a make-shift tennis court behind the old taylor junior high. The court is usually the location of the community gardens, which had to be removed during filming. The gardens were replaced, only to have some scenes re-shot a few months later. The gardens were removed a second time for the re-shoot.

The character of Jeffery Vanier, who is the high school quarterback in the film, is based on former Lincoln East's former All-State quarterback, Chris Eubanks.

This movie also stars Brandon Eaton, Emilee Wallace, Allen Evangelista, Justin Chon, A.D. Miles, and Conor Donovan.


The screenplay won the 2005 BlueCat Screenplay Competition, which is run by Philip Seymour Hoffman's brother, Gordy Hoffman.

Since its release on DVD, the film has received numerous accolades from media outlets.
