Storyline

The perpetual bench-warmer Beaver is allowed to play in the last few minutes of the football game, and he catches the winning touchdown. Initially, Beaver thinks nothing of it as he realizes he is not the greatest football player and much of it was luck. When many of his classmates start fawning over him, after the local newspaper prints his photo and writes about the game and after the local malt shop names a new sundae after him, Beaver starts to enjoy the adoration. Beaver also begins to get a swelled head about his new-found football prowess, even critiquing professional football players. Ward and Wally both think that they should speak to Beaver to bring him back down to earth. It isn't until the coach makes a decision about the next game that Beaver understands how much a jerk he's become. Written by Huggo
