    The episode starts off with Mr. Dewey (of SBTB original fame) telling the class that they need to do a project on someone they consider to be a hero. After class Eric tries to hit on a cheerleader but she blows him off with the quickness. Nickys new relationship with Katie is put to the test as Katies ex-boyfriend is coming to town as a football player on Baysides next opponent. Nicky siezes the opportunity to stick to Katie like glue for the rest of the week with messy results.



    At the pep rally for the upcoming football game everyone at Bayside is excited but Eric doesnt get an introduction or even any kind of acknowledgement for being part of the team. This all changes when at the next game he scores the game winning touchdown. Now all the players that ignored him are sweating him, the cheerleader, Heather, that told him to piss off is asking him out on dates, etc. He even blows off his own friends who were going to do the "hero" project on him in favor of his date with Heather. Ryan even starts marketing t-shirts with Erics picture on them for him to autograph at The Max and sell for $20. As the next game approaches Eric has such a big head that he thinks the team cant win without him. Fast forward to the end of the game where Eric catches the would-be game winning touchdown but starts his touchdown celebration two yards shy of the end zone, gets tackled, fumbles, and Bayside loses the game because of him, making him the straight up GOAT. Now his life becomes miserable as Heather dumps him, the t-shirts of him wont even sell for a dollar, and the "hero" project he planned to do with Maria and Rachel is already past its deadline.



    Screech sets up a meeting between Eric and his "cousin" to show Eric that football isnt everything. Of course the cousin just happens to be Jim Harbaugh who at the time of the filming of this episode was a really good Quarterback for the Indianapolis Colts. Harbaugh tells him that its a team sport and its not a selfish sport. They all agree that Jim should be the focal point of the groups "hero" project and he comes into class and gives a great speech on being a hero. Rachel and Maria back to being happy with Eric and the day is saved yet again.



    The second plot revolves around Nickys jealousy towards Katies ex-boyfriend coming back. He vows to spend as much time as he can with her to make her forgot about her ex. He stupidly tells her he wants to join the cheerleading squad after one of the cheerleaders gets injured. He obviously has no cheerleading experience and goes to of all people, the flat-footed cornball himself Screech, for advice on how to cheer. When it comes time to tryout he fakes an injury to get out of it. The next week Katie says that Nickys injury should be healed and he'll be with the team then. He finally comes clean that he faked the injury to get closer to Katie which pisses Katie off royally and she walks away from him. The next scene between the two of them is Nicky coming into The Max with pom poms with the most horrendous cheer in order to win Katie back and to my shock it works and theyre back as a couple.moreless
