Troy White can predict a play before it happens. Star quarterback on his state football team, Troys a natural for the 7-on-7 tournament thats being held at the Super Bowl in Miami. With any luck, his “football genius” will also be working for the Atlanta Falcons on that big day.
Ty Lewis is a wide receiver with exceptional speed. His brother, an NFL star, says getting on a 7-on-7 team will prove Tys a winner.
From the moment the two football champs cross paths, Troy and Ty begin to size each other up. Troy is suspicious of Tys interest in his friend Tate, while Ty worries his speed will never be a match for Troys game smarts. But when the two rivals find themselves somehow tangled in the same dangerous web of deceit, they discover that they have more in common than their skill at football.
