Trpy believes that Cory's football career is a no win situation. He believes that white America won't allow a black player a chance for success.

"Troy tells him, “ain’t no need for nobody coming around here to talk to me about signing nothing…The white man ain’t gonna let you get nowhere with that football noway. You go on and get your book-learnings so you can work yourself up in that A&P or learn how to fix cars or build houses or something, get you a trade. That way you have something can’t nobody take away from you.”
