Good Morning,

I have been searching Google for the answer or a tutorial. What I would like to do in After Effects or Premiere Pro CS 5.5 is to keep my main subject in my video in color and change the background to Black and White highlighting the football play, could anyone help ??

The movie "Pleasantville" did this quite a bit and so here's a search for "After Effects" + "Pleasantville" .

There are a few different ways to achieve this effect(as you will see if from the google link), but I think with a football play you are going to need to rotoscope and I think the Rotobrush will probably be the best tool for you to create this effect. The rotobrush isn't the most intuitive tool, so you might want to check out this tutorial: AfterEffects CS5: RotoBrush

So take a look at some of that material and if you have any specific questions, ask.

Johnny is pointing you in the right direction, but I think that this Roto Brush tutorial is a bit better targeted at the workflow for selectively applying an effect:
