College Football star Marty Reid has been repeatedly targeted for punishment by the other team, so much so that he swears to his coach and friend that he will quit the game, which causes many players to taunt him for being 'yellow'.  He is tricked into joining the team again by a rival on his team, Ed Kirby, who uses the affection Marty has for Patricia Carlyle against him at a dance for football players only.  Marty rejoins the team, but still doesn't have the respect of Ed or the rest of his teammates.  During a game both Marty and Ed are removed from the game and get in a fight in the locker room.  After the fight, Ed realizes that Marty is not a coward and has earned his respect.  They leave the locker room together and go on to win the game.

Notes:

Forward Pass was filmed on location at the USC campus.

A 22 year old John Wayne makes an appearance as an extra football player in Forward Pass.
