Thirteen-year-old Cody is aching to get back onto the pitch after he had a tumor removed from his leg last year. He tries out for the Lions and makes the team as a sub. Secretly Cody is relieved, since he hasn't told anyone on the team that he had cancer. But then there's a shakeup in team management and suddenly Cody has no choice but to play, even if his leg does begin to hurt. When he finally comes clean to his teammates about his disease and injury from the year before, they encourage him to trust his leg and his skill.
