Description by

Football coach George Cooper has as many problems managing his football team as he has at home dealing with his daughters, Ellen and Connie.

Product Description:

A light family comedy about a hapless college football coach who's got trouble at home and on the field. His daughters have reached that worrisome age and the alumni association is badgering him for some wins. One young man might be the answer to all his problems.

Plot Synopsis:

College football coach George Cooper faces losing scores at home and on the field.
He and his wife bicker about the proper way to soothe their children's growing pains. Young Ellen has taken on a holier-than-thou attitude, while her older sister, Connie, has been struggling through adolescence, and she has trouble finding dates.
On the gridiron, George doesn't fare much better. He can't manage to make his hard-working players gain any yards, much less reach the end zone. And the campus alumni is breathing down his neck to win some games or hand off the ball to a new coach.
Then one day George meets a fine young man who just might be the solution to his problems -- at work and at home.
