An undersized quarterback wins the starting role for a small FCS team; but when his father is sentenced to 35 years in prison, he must find the courage to lead an underdog Band of Brothers against the winningest team in College Football History.
HOUSE MONEY tells the story of Armanti Edwards, an under-sized athlete who dreams of playing quarterback for a big time Division-1 university. Unfortunately, Armanti's small stature leaves him ignored by the bigger programs. Only days before National Signing Day, Coach Jerry Moore of Appalachian State (a small, Division 1-AA university nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains) offers him a chance to compete for the quarterback position. Out of options and time, Armanti accepts the offer - struggling at first until he finally wins the backup quarterback role. Immediately after his first game, Armanti is blindsided by the news that his father (the man who dubbed him "Money" as a child) has been sentenced to serve 35 years in prison ... a likely life sentence for a man already in his mid-fifties. Amidst this tragedy, Armanti must dig deep and find the courage to lead his team of underdogs against the winningest team in the history of college football. But before Armanti can fulfill his father's prophecy and win this big "Money Game", he must first learn to trust his teammates so that, together, they can take down Goliath.
