Tommy Sullivan is a boy that left town in eight grade and has now returned over the summer before the senior year of high school. He left town because he exposed the football team members that were involved in a SAT cheating scandal.
When Tommy returns to Eastport, most of the people do not recognize him. He's much taller and more buff than he was when he left town. Tommy returns because he lands a job as a columnist for the local paper. Tommy will be covering the sports section for the paper.
