Movie with older indian who bails young kid out of jail and teaches him

A few years ago there was a movie where a kid was in jail and a native american who was a friend of his dad (that died in the military) bailed the kid out and tried to help him.  In the movie the native american takes the kid to the reservation.  One scene he has him tear down a shed and rebuild it.  In one scene he takes him out in the woods.  It starts to rain and the native american disappears.  The kid sleeps in the rain.  Next day he finds out there was a cabin around the corner and he didn't have to sleep outside.  Another scene they are playing lacrosse and the older native guy decks the kid, knocks him out and they just walk away and leave him there.

I can't remember the name of the movie.  It was a two word title I think but I can't recall either word.

Maybe "A Warrior's Heart"?

Full movie is on Youtube:

At 0:43:40 starts the scene where the native american marine buddy of his father bails the kid out of jail.
At 0:46:30 : It rains and the kid sleeps in the rain.

"In shock and denial over his Marine father's death in battle, star lacrosse player Conor Sullivan, always a maverick and a hothead, starts acting out in self-destructive ways that have his mom, Claire, at her wit's end, but arduous training in a wilderness lacrosse camp under the tutelage of his dad's old combat buddy, Sgt. Major Duke Wayne, opens Conor's eyes to the true meaning of maturity, sportsmanship and manhood."
