First Aired: July 31, 2002

Nina organizes a girls football team. Trouble is, the girls can't play and she doesn't know anything about football herself. Enter Jess. He's skeptical, of course, but he once was a football hero, so he takes over the team. He also finds an excellent prospect (America Ferrera) for quarterback. Her mother (Anne Betancourt), however, needs her to work. Flashbacks depict a strikingly similar dilemma that young Jess (Bodie Olmos) faced when he was in high school. Dora: Raquel Welch.
