Andrew Clark, the jock, always seems to be pleasing other people; his father, his coach, his friends. They all see him as a person that he doesn't necessarily want to be. Rather than disappoint them, he chooses to become who they think he is. This creates a lot of internal anger, which shows up quite a bit during the movie.
