James Van Der Beek (Dawson’s Creek) leads the action in this exciting, f unny coming-of-age story about a small-town high schooler co nfronting t he pressures and temptations of gridiron glory. At first, backup quarte rback Jonathan “Mox” Moxom (Van Der Beek) is nowh ere close to being a f ootball star. He’s perfectly content to stay on the bench and out of th e win-at-all-cost strategies of coach Bud Kilmer (Jon Voight in a powerf ul performance). But when the starting quarterback is injured, Mox is i n the game…and in direct c onflict with his hotheaded coach and girlfrie nd. Soon everyone in Mox’s football-crazed community will realize there ’s not just a n ew star quarterback in town, there’s a new kind of hero.
