Black people are now being allowed in class with white people but Rodney and his sister are made fun of for being friends with Tater.
Tater gets a chance
Tater and Rodney make the football team but Rodney is a starter and Tater is on the bench.
Best season ever
Tater sits on the bench not because of his skill but because of his race.
With the starting quarterback suspended and the backup hurt Tater gets a chance and does great.
With Tater at quarterback the Tigers are having their best season ever and are heading to the state championship.
Tater is running for a touchdown in the championship game but he collapses and fumbles the ball but Rodney picks it up and scores a touchdown and wins the game. The day after the game he learns that Tater died from hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.
