Within a day a social workerplaces him with a family from the other side of town, the Lawtons.

It's on Jayson to believe that he deserves a better life than the one he once had. The ultimate prize if he can? A trip to play in the state finals at Cameron Indoor Stadium home to the Duke Blue Devils and launching pad to his dream of playing bigtime college ball.
