An Underage High School boy who the German/Polish Nationality Cross Country Coach treats to a picture of beer on a Friday night, the next day the boy is up and running early although he is still under the effects of alcohol, he does not see a car backing out of its driveway and is run over becoming a quadriplegic for the rest of his life.
That scenario there epitomizes athletic scholarships and the drive to succeed in Professional sports; and psychotic parents on the sidelines acting in violence against referees. Perhaps even beaming a young normal boy who is their blonde haired neighbor in the eye with a tennis ball?
