Directed by second-time movie helmer as well as former Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst, "Longshots" is based on a true story of Jasmine Plummer, an 11-year-old quarterback of the Harvey Colts, who leads her all-boys team to the Pop Warner Super Bowl and in a way inspires her poor Illinois town of Wallace to restore some of its former glory.

Jasmine Plummer didn't suit up this past season because her mom won't let her play with the boys anymore."She said they are too big now," said Jasmine, a freshman at Joliet West High School."I wanted to play football more than anything, but she doesn't think it's safe for me because they get bigger."While she had to give up her first love, she'll be able to relive her football stardom at age 11 on the big screen this summer.Hollywood decided the feats of Plummer, now 15, deserve big-screen treatment.Her story will be told in the movie "The Longshots," which hits theaters in July.Keke Palmer, of "Akelah and the Bee," plays Jasmine.At age 11, Jasmine, who then lived in Harvey, made Pop Warner football history as the first girl to play quarterback in the national championship in the 56 years the organization has held the tournament.While out in Florida for the "Super Bowl" of Junior Pee Wee football, the media put Jasmine in sports magazines, newspapers and on television.On ESPN, she was seen running in a clip promoting the Pop Warner tournament.Jasmine understands why Hollywood wanted her to be a girly girl in order to make the movie interesting."I've always loved sports," she said.She started wrestling at age 7.Although she gave up football in high school, Jasmine earned a spot on the JT girls' varsity basketball team and is working hard to make it to state finals for the Steelmen track team.Like Jasmine's life, Keke's character leads her team to the national championships.Jasmine started playing for the Harvey Colts when she was 9 years old, thanks to her uncle."I saw her play in the streets with some neighbors, with kids twice her size," he said."You can tell she actually enjoyed what she was doing, keeping up with the boys on the street and embarrassing some of them."Jasmine said she preferred playing sports than playing with dolls.During one game, a tackle left Jasmine on the ground unable to move.Jasmine didn't return that day, but was soon back on the field.Her teammates weren't always supportive; it took awhile at first for the boys to accept her."The first year I didn't really play quarterback I was just a linebacker.I guess, they listened to me more because they know I can hit them hard," she said.The following year, she led her team to an 11-1 record and to the national championships as quarterback, a role she loves."I get to boss people around," she said with a laugh.Modest about lifeJasmine, who is the oldest of five children, moved to Joliet at the end of eighth grade, attending Washington Junior High School.So when she got to Joliet West High School this fall, Jasmine's background as a football star was unknown.Jasmine isn't one to brag about herself.And, then through a newspaper interview, Lipke found out Jasmine has her own line of athletic wear coming out.Jasmine doesn't like it when people call her a tomboy."Just because I liked to play with the boys don't mean I'm a tomboy.I mean, I'm still a girl.I still like to do some things the girls do, but not just the really girly stuff," Jasmine said."Jump rope is kind of fun.You won't catch me doing my nails.The hair thing, mom did that," she said referring to a hairdo for a photo shoot."If I do good in school, I can play basketball," Jasmine said.I almost got kicked off the basketball team (by mom)," Jasmine said."I just said I was going to get it up.It was just a misunderstanding, and I only missed (an A) by five-tenths."Who's the celebrity?In February, Jasmine, her mom and her uncle got to meet the stars portraying them while the actors were filming in Shreveport, La."I was more amazed (the actors) were more excited to see Jasmine than we were to see them," Fred Johnson said."Keke's just like me," Jasmine said.During their visit, Jasmine tried to play matchmaker, hooking up Ice Cube and Tasha Smith, who plays her mom.Her uncle said Jasmine could still get out on the field and play football, but right now they are getting her to concentrate on basketball so she can get a college scholarship.Jasmine already has a spot on the Chicago Force, women's tackle football team, when she turns 18.After high school, she hopes to play college basketball and then the WNBA.Jasmine, her mom, her uncle and her dad, Joseph Plummer, will be going out to Los Angeles for the premier in July.Jasmine prefers sports attire or jeans and shirts.

HARVEY, Ill. (Dec. 8, 2003) -- Jasmine Plummer, 11, is the quarterback for the Harvey Colts, and she will lead the Junior Pee Wee team into the national Pop Warner tournament in Florida next week. She is the first girl to play quarterback in the national championship in the 56 years the organization has held the tournament, Pop Warner officials say. "It's not a big deal.I just like to play football because I don't like to play with Barbie dolls," Jasmine told the Chicago Tribune at the Thornton High School gym. She joined the Pop Warner Mighty Mites division at age 6. She led her team to an undefeated record last year.
