It is the most important football game of the year for the Newport Beach Tigers. Thirteen year old Casey Glynn, the star receiver, drops the perfect pass and blows the game. In one devastating moment Casey loses the respect of the person he looks up to most in life -- his father and coach, Big John Glynn. Casey works obsessively to become a successful Hollywood literary agent, marries the perfect girl, and buys a home in Brentwood, all in the hopes of winning back his father's love. As his ideal life starts to spin out of control, can the real Casey save himself? American Pride is the story of an all-American boy finding his way back through the lies and secrets from his past, and discovering the unexpected upside that comes from "losing."
