Cory and his best friend, Liam, have always loved football. Even though they live in a rough neighborhood, where good kids are often faced with bad choices, their passion for the game has carried them through. So Cory couldn’t be more excited when the coach at HCB, an elite private school with one of the best football programs in the country, recognizes Liam’s talents on the field. But then an injury sidelines Liam, now giving Cory this amazing opportunity.
Cory knows that football could be his big ticket out. But he will have to move in with a wealthy patron to attend HCB, and try to fit in in a world where most people look at him and just see a poor scholarship kid. Cory knows that if he can fight hard enough—both on and off the field—he may just be able to secure a future that looks different from his past.
