AJ Green, a new kid in town, shows up at the high school boys basketball varsity tryouts and instantly makes an impression. Coach takes notice, and so do the other players, some of whom feel threatened by the new blood. The school’s team is excellent, “second best in the state” and this is the year Coach plans to win it all. AJ proves himself on the court and clearly has talent, heart, and drive as well as a big secret. Will AJ make the team once the players and coach discover the truth?
