SummaryAdd a Summary
After being fired from his job as coach in Boise, Idaho, coach Jim White moves his family of four across the country to McFarland California. He works as the life science teacher, PE coach, and assistant football coach. He decides to start a cross-country team, after noticing the keen running skill in most of the students. It also gives insight on the lives of the students and their work as "pickers". It is a wonderful tribute to the original team and their town, McFarland.

White's prep talk:
They haven't got what you've got. They don't get up at dawn like you and go to work in the fields. They don't go to school all day and then go back to those same fields. That's what you do. And then you come out with me and you run eight miles, 10 miles and you take on even more pain. These kids don't do what you do. They can't even imagine it. I want you to look around. Best in the state, right? Every team that's here deserves to be, including you. But they haven't got what you got. All right? They don't get up at dawn like you and go to work in the fields. Right? … that day with you Diaz kids, I'll be honest with you, it was a... It was the worst day's work I ever had to do in my life. And I said to myself, "Whatever kind of crappy job I end up in, "it'll never be as tough as that." You kids do it every day. And your parents hope they can do it every day, and they'll do it for a lifetime if it means a better life for you.
