College football star Ken Thomas (William Hopper) promises his girl friend (June Travis) he'll hang up his cleats rather than risk further injury; however, his alma mater stands to get a Big Donation if it can win the Big Game. Ken's to-play-or-not-to-play dilemma is further complicated by
the fact that his family has money riding on the other team. What's a gridiron hero to do? Play, of course, but not if the scheming lawyer who has Ken tossed in jail has anything to say about it. Based on William Jacobs' story "Block That Kick," this formula football film boasts the presence of
members of the USC team.
