Ed Branish is a high school teacher who is very reluctant about taking the job of coaching the school's wrestling team that is known for losing. Ed does take the job and soon decides that the team needs a star player to lift their spirits and boost their enthusiasm. Student Nick Kilvitus is as reluctant to join the team as Ed was to coach it, but changes his mind when his successes make him popular at school. As the team rises in status, Ed and his charges begin to like each other and have a general change of attitude.
