Sporty Spencer’s “All American” Story
Rising high school football player and “A” student Spencer James ( Daniel Ezra) goes to South Crenshaw High in Compton, South LA, the place he calls home. Then he’s offered the opportunity of a lifetime when his coach Billy Baker ( Taye Diggs) recruits him to join his team in Beverly Hills. Encouraged to seize his opportunity, Spencer begins navigating two vastly different worlds, from the South LA neighbourhood he knows to the affluent Beverly Hills one that is tempting him with fame and fortune.
Moving in with Billy to protect his transfer permit, Spencer clashes with Billy’s son Jordan – the team’s starting quarterback – who’s jealous of losing his dad’s undivided attention and the team spotlight. To add insult to Jordan’s “injury,” Spencer befriends his troubled sister Olivia ( Samantha Logan), crushes on new classmate Layla ( Greta
Onieogou) and makes an enemy of her boyfriend Asher ( Cody Christian), who wants him off the team and out of 90210, pronto!
