High school football Coach Victor Trenton is beloved by the town and is a father figure to his team. When the all-star player dies of cardiac attack during an intense practice, all eyes turn to the storied head coach. Instead of mollifying the situation, the coach tries to push the team to continue their winning streak rather than giving them proper time to mourn.
