STORY DESCRIPTION: When a group of non-athletic boys are required to play on a South Orange River Middle School Soccer team, they achieve fame. They become famous, however, not because of the quality of their play, but by the hilarious ways they lose. In so doing, they give new meaning to the concepts of team spirit and success.
