Right after we met the gifted quarterback of the Dillon Panthers, he was struck down by a brutal football game injury. In an instant, the hometown hero became a quadriplegic. But the show took a surprise direction, following Street, played by Scott Porter, through rehab, breaking up with his girlfriend, finding purpose and joy in quadriplegic rugby, moving out to live on his own and miraculously becoming a father.
