This year, the Kennisaw Knights are going for their fifth straight undefeated season, and if they succeed, they'll be over the best high school team inside the eastern Oklahoma hill country--they'll be legends. But the Knights' legacy is actually a heavy weight to carry for Hampton, linebacker and star from the team. His father walked out on him and his mom years ago, and now his mom features a new boyfriend every week. And meanwhile, his best friend and teammate Blaine--the true friend who initial introduced Hampton to football back when he had nothing at all else--is becoming uncomfortably competitive, and he's demanding Hampton's loyalty even as Hampton thinks he's going too far. But his life off the field might possibly be a diverse story.
