Head coach, Tony D’Amato has held his position for years but is beginning to slip in the eyes of his niece, Christina Pagniacci, who just inherited the owner/general manager position after her fathers death, Tony’s brother. The starting quarterback and team captain Jack Rooney has just had a major accident, leaving the team without direction. Up-and-coming third-string quarterback Willie “Steamin” Beamen has taken over and making plays all of his own has shot himself to stardom, leaving behind the other players and the idea of it being a team sport.
