The true story of James Gregory, an outstanding high school quarterback from California who, hoping to get into pro football, becomes the lone white student at Grambling College in Louisiana. Harry Belafonte made his TV dramatic debut as the famed Grambling coach Eddie Robinson, and the part of Gregory was the first starring role for sports star-turned-actor Bruce Jenner, whose production company co-produced the film. Jenner's manager since becoming an Olympic decathalon gold medalist in 1978, George Wallach, is the other half of Jenner/Wallach Productions. A dispute over screen credit for writing involved veteran Abby Mann, who was a script consultant on the project and supervised several rewrites, and the three writers finally credited, had to be arbitrated by the Writers Guild.
