A Belford College scout recruits the best player from a prison team, Thomas Burke, arranging for a parole on good faith. When Burke hesitates, he shows him how he could also find potential robbery victims at the college. Rich people. But he gets in trouble during the first practice with a dirty tackle and quits the team. To keep him in school, the scout enlists the help of a pretty coed who happens to be a policeman's daughter. He quits again over a misunderstanding, gets arrested, gets sprung and is rushed to the big game in time to score the winning touchdown. Quillan did not look the part of a star halfback as he stood just 5-foot-6. But he certainly had the look of a jailbird. And also lots of energy.
