This film is based on the true story of T. C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia, where Herman Boone was appointed the first black coach of the integrated high school football team in 1971. The white coach Bill Yoast must stand aside, but he decides to stay on as assistant to Boone. The team survives the racial turbulence in the city and school and goes on to a 13-0 season and the state championship.
