Storyline

Holmes High's football team is having trouble on the field, and the players suggest that Chet film their scrimmages to help them correct their mistakes. At first he resists the suggestion, but then borrows a camera and its equipment and begins experimenting with it. In the meantime, a former star football player named Alex returns after a career-ending leg injury. Chet is distressed that Alex plans to drop out of school because his football-playing days are over, and suggests that Alex become his assistant coach instead. Written by aldanoli

A look back at pro athlete salaries
7 January 2020 | by AlsExGalSee all my reviews

Fifty years later I remember this one. Coach Kinkaid has an ex student who plans to drop out because he had an injury that would prevent him from playing professional football. The student thinks there is no point in getting a degree if he can't go on to the pros. I think what sticks out in my memory is that Kinkaid introduces the former student to the school gardener who dropped out of college and played pro football, but his career ended because of an injury. And here he is just a working class guy mowing lawns.

Today pro football athletes make so much money that in a few years you could literally buy the college of your choice, the salaries have gotten so insane, particularly for the future hall of famers. Most pro football players leave college after three years because who wants that career ending injury as a college senior?

So this one is odd not only because of who is giving the moral lesson, but because of how invalid that lesson has become. The NFL league minimum salary for a rookie in 2019 was 495K a year.
