Time Out says

This hackneyed teen sports movie marks hardly any advance on All The Right Moves. A non-conformist high school quarterback Mox (Van Der Beek) hopes for a scholarship to escape the confines of his Texas locality. In the meantime he leads a pitch mutiny against the team's tyrannical coach Kilmer (Voight). The characters are personable, as stereotypes go, and the film displays some scepticism about small town America's sporting meritocracy - it turns out everyone down to the head cheerleader is looking for an escape, in their different ways - although the matter found richer expression in two minutes' worth of Richard Linklater's Dazed and Confused.
