STICK WITH IT / TRAIN HARD / BELIEVE IN YOURSELF!

High School Senior Chris Torres dreams of being a Top Gun, but first he has to wrestle his way in!

Athletic, smart, and good looking, but also sort of a smug solo act, high schooler Chris has his dreams of flying jets crushed when he is rejected by the US Naval Academy.

His wrestling coach challenges him:

The only way into the Naval Academy is to win the State Wrestling Championship.

And so starts the training, the preparation, and the focus to reach that goal.

From wrestling practice to fitness training to flying lessons to attitude adjustment, Chris pursues the endgame and faces down the obstacles that stand in his way including “the bully’, two Navy Seals, and of course, a high school romance.

But it’s the wrestling that provides the path. A sport where both the team and the individual must align as one; where each match counts and a winner will prevail.
