Staying on her grind, a young Berry starred in The Program later that same year. The film, which also starred Omar Epps, dealt with the struggles that college football players face when balancing sports and academics. Berry played Autumn Jackson, a tutor who helped Epps’ character get on track to becoming the school’s star running back. Her role was both small and, unfortunately, forgettable, by no fault of her own. But her grind was about to pay off!
