He also avoids provoking the star quarterback, Hunter Gates, well known for his bullying tactics. Hunter struggles on the field, causing him to act even more like the bully he is, lashing out at not only Brock but also Brock’s friend, the quiet Richie Fang. Brock wants to stand up for Fang, but he is younger and smaller. But when the bullying goes too far, will Brock be able to face his fears and prove to himself that he is brave enough?
