Gavin and his friends Mido and Critter are starting high school this year, which means moving from a school with a championship-winning soccer team to a school that doesn’t have a team at all. With a little encouragement from his friends and granddad, a former “footballer” from England, Gavin musters up his courage and makes a deal with the school football coach — he agrees to let the soccer team share the field while the football team practices, but Gavin will be responsible for running the team. With a newbie team made up of misfits and kids just out to have a good time, Gavin soon learns that being a good coach isn’t the same as being a good player.
