| Excellent Character Study
Given the time this was made, the limitations of Television in the areas of profanity and violence, this made for TV film is outstanding.

Excellent performances by Busey, Hagman and Johnson are highlights and the story itself is terrific as well.

I was 13 when it came out, but had already been exposed to coaches not dissimilar to the one portrayed by Hagman.

As the father, Ben Johnson gives a true-to-life performance of a "little league" father, living through his son, instead of for him.

Finally, Busey does a great job portraying a star HS QB. He has always been an inconsistent actor, but when he is "on" there are few that can beat him.

I have been looking for a copy of this film for YEARS!!! If anyone had a lead or anyone or anywhere I might contact, please let me know. Thanks!
