Tiki Cant Believe It when the ball is knocked out of his hand in the Cave Spring Vikings last preseason game against their rival Knights. And when nobody wants to talk to him the next day at lunch, he feels even worse. So Ronde and Paco start "secret" practices with Tiki, and Coach shows him a special four point ball carry. And after plenty of practice, Tiki is transformed from a runner to a ball carrier, and he feels more confident than ever before. Now hes a winner—and so is his team!
