Summary
A high school football player is faced with losses, both on the field and off. Roy is a defeated hero whose only chance of saving his dignity is "the slaughter rule", a forced end to the game before the point of humiliation. Roy becomes lost in a world with rules, but a renegade coach and a new romance give him the strength for one last play
