A new movie, Brian Banks, features a true story about a former Poly student.

In 2002, Brian Banks was an All-American football player for Poly who was already commited to USC when a girl falsely accused Banks of raping and kidnapping her. He tried maintaining his innocence but the judicial system failed him and sentenced him to a decade of prison/parole. Banks was also forced to register as a sex offender. Even though he was seen as guilty, Banks was determined and fought to clear his name. With the help of the California Innocence Project, Banks was proven innocent and he was exonerated, meaning his record was cleared. So in 2012, Banks was finally able to pursue his dream to be a part of the NFL.
