When David Green (Brendan Fraser) a Jewish, working-class football player is picked up on a football scholarship by a prestigious New England academy, David believes this may be his ticket to an Ivy League education and totally new prospects. As school quarterback David's stock rises amongst fellow students, yet he is warned by the school elders that professing his faith may cause problems.

David takes the school team from one win to the next and has a promising friendship with roommate Chris Reece (Chris O'Donnell) and a budding relationship with Sally at the nearby girls' school.
