Nate Brodie is a professional football player. He is in his schools football team and is almost as good as his role mode Tom Brady. Which would explain why everyone calls him Nate 'Brady" also because he is a New England Quarterback. Suddenly an opportunity of a life time comes around which he can't pass by. He can win a million dollars by throwing one pass through a target at half time of a Patriots game. His family really needs the money because his dad lost his jog, his mother took up two jobs to support the family, and they're about to lose their home. The pressure of winning a million dollars is affecting his game play on his team. Suddenly his Best Friend is becoming blind and he needs money for the surgery so that he can see again. What will Nate do?
