This is a really great story about a towns teen sport jock who gets involuntarily teamed up with local bowling square pegs.

A long running tradition between two rival towns is about to be retired and it is up to this odd bunch to take home the prize. With no time to spare Todd McLemore, town jock and son of the mayor, must learn how to bowl. But he has a thing or two to teach the group of overly confident teen bowlers.

Alex Thompson, leader of the brat, learns that change can be a good thing. Between Todd and Alex they come up with an idea to save the unpopular bowling alley. A great story of team building and friendship. Definitely a must see!
