Pay close attention to the last sentence!

The school board of Plano filed a suit that would prevent Carter from moving on in the playoffs. The Texas education commissioner now came involved trying to figure out Gary Edward’s grade. Will Bates had been suspended because of safety concerns. Carter had won its third playoff game against Lufkin 31-7. Then the cowboys beat Marshall Mavericks with 3 seconds 22-18. Had meeting with Permian officials on where to play the game. After a little debate they decided on University of Texas at Austin Memorial Stadium. They also wanted at least two black officials for the game.

Powerful black lawyers in the city begin to look into the problem just when the principal decides to change Gary’s grade.
