Terry Rivers is the son of Frank Mosca's accountant Jack Rivers. A standout in football at Dade County High School, Terry has several college scholarship offers waiting, but his father was arrested for his activities and agreed to turn State's evidence to get Mosca in jail, but due to Terry's football dreams he decided not to enter the Witness Protection Program, but made sure Terry would go to his friend, James "Sonny" Crockett, if anything happened to Rivers. After his father's death at the hands of a Mosca-paid prison guard and inmate, Terry turns over to Crockett all of Mosca's records, including spreadsheets, tally sheets, etc. But after Mosca's goons successfully arranged a mistrial for the mob boss, Terry showed up at the courthouse steps with a gun, intending to kill Mosca, but Crockett talks him out of it, saying that would make his father's death meaningless and not what he wanted for his son.
