The New Guy

Factual error: In the big football scene we see the very short student playing the tuba. The music he is playing requires the use of the valves on the tuba, but his fingers never move. (01:07:55)

Continuity mistake: During the football game between Rocky Creek and Highland, when Rocky Creek hikes the ball and pinches it back, he is distracted and doesn't catch it. A player from Highland picks it up and runs for the touchdown. When one highland player is hitting a rocky creek player, in the bottom left corner of the screen, you see the ball mysteriously rolling on the ground. Then the next shot shows the same guy who picked up the ball making a touchdown. Two balls for one football game? (01:10:00)
