Blurb: 
After a very successful career in high school as a scholar and athlete, Jim Wellington leaves his hometown of Waterloo, Iowa, and heads for his father's alma mater: Harvard. Hoping to meet the standards set by his father and earn his respect, Jim settles into his course schedule and tries out for the football team. Surprised by the unfriendliness of his fellow students and the intensity of the competition, Jim first struggles then flounders, ultimately finding himself rejected by the football coach and on academic probation. With the help of a couple of true friends, Jim struggles to find his place in this strange environment and achieve some success.
