David Boreanaz says the heroine in his new film, "The Mighty Macs," is "inspiring."

"The Mighty Macs," which was released on October 21, is based on the true story of Cathy Rush, portrayed by Carla Gugino, who becomes the head basketball coach at a small, all-girls Catholic college. The team doesn't have uniforms or a gym to call their own, but through perseverance and overcoming hardship is steered to their first national championship under Rush's direction. David Boreanaz portrays Rush's husband, Ed.

"It's inspiring, watching you know, a character like Cathy Rush really, with the adverse conditions and being strong enough to take a small school like Immaculata College, especially at that time, and to transform these kids and win a national championship," the 42-year-old actor told OnTheRedCarpet.com and other press outlets in a satellite interview.

"It just is an inspiration to say you have a goal, and you can go out and do it," he added. "Portraying someone like Ed Rush, you know being along for that ride, being transformed himself as a character to be a part of that as the film comes to a conclusion -- it was just a great journey."

Boreanaz is best known for his starring roles in television series like "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," it's spin-off "Angel" and the Fox medical drama, "Bones."
