In Football, Texas, throwing around the pigskin isn't just a game.

When All-American quarterback Conor Layne goes down with two broken legs, his teammates hang their heads in grave concern.

However, there's still a football game to win with two minutes left in regulation. Layne's parents root for him to overcome the injury, but the high school signal-caller can't rise to his feet.

Fortunately, Coach Walker comes up with a genius idea and puts on a uniform to represent his school. Then, a defender crushes him after the snap. Nonetheless, his dedication to the game knows no boundaries—or maybe he takes the sport way too seriously.
