Storyline

When Billy returns from reform school he has to attend a different high school at the other side of town. He tries to start with a clean slate but his old rival doesn't make it easy on him and his buddy Louie tries to make him go astray again. His brother Joe, quite the opposite of Billy, is a good runner and determined to win a track scholarship. He suggests Billy to join his school's track team, which pits the two brothers against each other... Written by Willy Vanhaelen <willy.vanhaelen@advalvas.be>

Goofs

An 800 meter time of 1:58 is nowhere near good enough to win a scholarship to Stanford. On top of that Stanford would never have any interest in a county championship, they would be more concerned with a potential recruit's performance on the state/national level. See more »

Two brothers race for the finish line.
26 July 2002 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

Not much to rave about unless you happen to be a Brad Pitt fan or a follower of Rick Schroder. The two play high school brothers that find some success on the track field. Pitt is trying to walk the straight and narrow; while Schroder is a reform school refugee. Otherwise this movie does good to hold interest against an after school TV movie. Carrie Snodgress plays the passive mother still grieving her husbands death. Thomas Mikal Ford is the "meaning well" track coach. Unrealistic casting hurts.
