This is the true story of Jim Gregory, Grambling University's first white football player. Back when Gregory was at Grambling, it had not been THAT many years since Blacks were allowed to play football at most Southern Schools. Since many of the players at Grambling felt heavily discriminated against, they naturally resented Gregory for encroaching on "their" school. Further resentment happened against Gregory because he played Quarterback, a position that in those days was considered reserved for Whites only. Grambling in those days sent more players to the NFL than any other school, largely because the opportunities were not there for many of the Black players to go to largely White Universities in the South. Gregory encounters discrimination on all sides. He is not liked by the Black football players because he is in their school. And hes not liked by Whites because he plays football for a Black school. As time goes on, however, Gregory's work ethic and personality wins over almost all of his teammates at Grambling. We learn a lot about race relations in those days, and how a proper attitude can overcome them. If there is a weakness, its the rather so-so acting of Bruce Jenner. He was a great athlete, but hes not much of an actor. Still, the story was so interesting that Jenner's performance really doesn't matter.
