This is the true story of a football team that results when three high schools (two black and one white) are integrated in 1971. The former white coach (Patton) steps down, and a black coach (Washington) takes over, much to the chagrin of those local people with lingering racist tendencies. Against great odds, the resultant new team went on to great success.
