Times of Tension is about perseverance through a young African American teen, Isaiah Cooley, who because of his gang affiliation, is forced to leave everything he has ever known behind. Life in the "hood" has finally over shadowed his potential on and off the football field and because of the love of his family and community, he has been thrown into a very different and new world. He must learn to respect and embrace differences in cultures before it also terminates his football career. With a no nonsense Head Football coach, Isaiah must submit to getting guidance counseling where he discovers that we all can change. In the end, Isaiah perseveres through all of the obstacles that come his way and becomes the great football star that he always dreamed of becoming with the help of friends, family and community.
