Jeremy likes to ride his bike and trade comics with his good friend, Lloyd. In school they have lots of fun together, especially when they sit next to each other and joke about the girls. But when it comes to sports, Lloyd seems to forget about friendship, and only cares about winning. Ever worse, he considers Jeremy a less-than-average athlete- and lets him know it.

When a new gym teacher, Mike, introduces soccer at school, Jeremy is skeptical. But his enthusiasm grows with Mikeís encouragement, and Jeremy realizes that size and strength arenít the ultimate factor in how well you play the game.
