Martin Milner is a big football star at some university somewhere. His girlfriend and his former coach are furious at him for leaving the football team and working with a professor who is doing some mysterious research. It turns out that Milner has superhuman strength and can run a three minute mile. A reporter is determined to blow the whistle on what the professor is doing. He snoops around where he doesn't belong (a common activity in these episodes) and begins to build a case against this man (who, of course, is doing nothing wrong). Then, one of those juvenile plot elements concludes the thing. What starts out as a reasonable episode turns into a children's story.
