Head coach Sam Archer (John Amos) and his right-hand man, Milo Jackson (Tim Conway), have been leading Merrivale College's track team to a succession of last-place finishes. A chance visit to Africa brings Sam and Milo the athlete of their dreams: an orphan wild-child named Nanu (Jan-Michael Vincent). The hapless coaches convince Nanu to leave his carefree life in the jungle for the cutthroat world of college athletics where, naturally, not all goes according to plan.
