Hail Mary Football [01.01.09]

Playing in a New Year's Day bowl game is the pinnacle of success for college football players. Don Stancavish never played college football, but he vividly remembers the catch of his life as a high school wide receiver. He caught the game-winning touchdown pass against his school's arch rival with just seconds on the clock.

Twenty-four years later, the same ball he caught showed up in a package on his front porch. Also in the show: A musician channels her roots through jazz.
