High school football hero Steve Novak finds himself caught up in the world of big-time college athletics at Jackson University in the 1950's. He must balance his desire to get an education with the high expectations of his coach and "benefactor," by whose grace he is attending Jackson. Still applicable today, the movie shows that the problems of college athletics are not just a new phenomenon.
