Kevin slights his younger brother Danny O'Shea by rejecting Danny's daughter Becky "Icebox" O'Shea, who is a good player. Kevin rejected her simply because she's a girl. Becky and some of her friends, boys who were also rejected, get the idea to start up their own team, to be coached by Danny.

Danny and Becky scour the town in search of willing players, and they gather a crew of kids who have limited skills and no team spirit.

State police? Oh, thank God! My name is Thelma Mae Rogers, I'm 86 years old, I live in Urbania. There are two men down the bridge from the Shell station spying on some kids!

I just don't think it's right for men their age to be parading around in their underwear!

Nice job, Timmy.

I adore this movie and I have it on VHS. I do wish they could put it on DVD. It's about football more like a pint size Dallas Cowboys. They do have guest appearance from Mr. Madden and Emmitt Smith. It's so funny and great for a family movie. No voilence except the roughness of the players. I give it a thumbs up. The cast are wonderful. It's a family movie.
