[YOUNG CHUCKY MULLINS] African-American, 9 years old in 1978, Young Chucky is a football nut. He lives with his grandmother, and never sees his mother. He loves to do push-ups, works like a dog to finance his obsession, and lives for the moments when he is on the field, facing a 9 or 10 year old opponent. Mired in black poverty, Young Chucky is orphaned when his grandmother passes, and he is lucky to be adopted into the family of Carver and Karen Phillips, who provide a loving home in which his natural athleticism and God-given optimism of spirit can both flourish…LEAD.
