doesn’t look like the fairy-tale

ending the Cougars were hoping for.



Jason sitting on the bench, his head down. The three doctors

performing a series of physical assessments.


Do you have ringing in your ears?

Jason shakes his head. Then, someone catches his eye. Sees...

The Cougars head coach SIMON PARR (50s) talking to BILLY

WRIGHT (30), their backup QB. Billy’s ego is astronomical.

Back to Jason watching them while the doctor keeps examining.

DOCTOR #2 (O.C.)

Do you know where you are?

Jason’s looks right at the doctor.


Look, I wasn’t knocked out. I was

just a little dazed and trying to

get my bearings back there.

Jason grabs some water and starts to walk around, the doctors

watching his every move. Coach Parr approaches the head doc.


What’s the verdict?


Well, he answered the level of

consciousness questions correctly

but I believe he has a concussion.

Parr catches Jason’s eye. He looks pained, angry.


The commentators watching the monitors closely.


Stallings has 11 fourth quarter

comeback wins in his 10-year career

with the Cougars...

Now the other commentator is chiming in with his piece.



With four minutes left in the game,

the Cougars have the ball on their

own 20 yard line with 82 yards to

go for a touchdown. A field goal

could win them the game if they can

stop the other team from scoring or

just run out the clock.


Jason hesitantly looks out at the field. Sees...

-- Billy finishes the cadence and then hands off the ball to

the running back who gets seven yards and is taken down.

-- Billy snaps the ball and backpedals, faking a handoff to

the running back, who begins blocking for the QB.
