"All American"
Wednesday, January 16 from 9 to 10 PM ET/PT on The CW
 
         In the January 16 episode, "Keep Ya Head Up," Spencer (Daniel Ezra) should be on top of the world -- his football team is headed to the playoffs and he can finally be with Layla (Greta Onieogou) -- but he can't shake a major tragedy that occurred causing him to question everything. Meanwhile, Coop (Bre-Z) learns some disturbing information about a friend and Jordan (Michael Evans Behling) is worried about the results of a drug test that could end his football career for good. Taye Diggs, Samantha Logan, Cody Christian, Monet Mazur, Karimah Westbrook and Jalyn Hall also star.
 

        Spencer James is a rising high school football player and A student at South Crenshaw High. Compton is the place he calls home. But when Beverly High School’s football coach Billy Baker recruits him to join the team in Beverly Hills, Spencer’s mother, Grace, and his best friend, Coop, convince Spencer it’s an opportunity he has to seize.
 
         Now Spencer must navigate two worlds — the south side neighborhood that he knows and the affluent Beverly Hills world that has offered him an opportunity for something bigger. When Spencer is forced to move in with Billy and his family to protect his transfer permit to Beverly, Billy’s son Jordan, the team’s starting quarterback, is less than thrilled to be sharing his father’s attention, or the team spotlight, with Spencer.

          While Spencer struggles to find his footing, he makes an unlikely friend in Jordan’s sister, Olivia, who is dealing with her own demons. He also quickly develops a crush on his classmate, Layla, something her boyfriend, Asher, quickly realizes — and so, he sets out to drive Spencer off the football team and out of Beverly Hills for good.
