He played on a high-school championship team, parlayed that into a college scholarship, and even played a little pro ball. Now he's an assistant to his old high-school teammate Barry Sand. Sand gets the accolades; Lee gets the players. The game and the money that's tainted it sicken him, but he does his job. On a whirlwind recruiting trip, Lee cuts a monetary deal with a high-school coach to deliver his star, then piously tells the mother of another player to always travel the high road. Whatever it takes, Pat Lee delivers the meat. Back on campus, the team's star rapes a coed. Head coach Sand evolves a plan that will leave his star uncharged if he turns down offers to jump to the NBA. It's blackmail, and Lee is the bagman. Quantity Available: 1.
