Instead of practicing, Brother, Cousin Fred and Too Tall discover an easier way of winning the big football game - in the form of Betsy Broom. Betsy can run faster than Brother, she can jump higher than Too Tall and dodge quicker than Cousin Fred. In exchange for her promise to help them win the game, the boys gladly agree to help Betsy practice her track and basketball and ballet. The boys soon find it's not easy keeping up with Betsy but by striving to do so, they discover they've improved on certain skills they needed to be better football players. So much so in fact, that they go out and win the big game - without Betsy. As it turns out, this was her plan all along.
