This story tells about a scene that seems closer to reality, in 1973. The story began with a talented football player in a high school, suffering from a severe racism in his life. The talented player must learn how to embrace his talent and faith while fighting racial battles both on and off the pitch to become the first African-American star in an exciting battle in his life to achieve his goal.
