In his first feature following the success of television’s Dawson’s Creek, James Van Der Beek stars as Jonathan Moxon, the back-up quarterback on his high-school football team, the West Canaan Coyotes. In West Canaan, the only thing that matters is football, and the man who matters is the one with 22 divisional championships, coach Bud Kilmer. Mox, as the young “A” student is called, is wrapping up his senior year on his way to Brown University in the shadow of his childhood friend, star quarterback Lance Harbor. With only five games until the end of the season, Kilmer pushes his players too hard, and Lance suffers a career-ending injury, forcing Mox to play and win the game. Now the starter, Mox must deal with his newfound celebrity, the attentions of Lance’s girlfriend, head-cheerleader Darcy, prevent his friends and fellow players Billy Bob and Tweeder from self-destructing, prevent Coach Kilmer from crushing everybody, and hold on to his own girlfriend, Lance’s sister Jules. Oh, and Mox must also win the championship and prove himself the hero.
