Twins Ava and Alex Sackett are new to a football-crazed Texas town and must acclimate to both the football fever and the attention they get as the head coach's daughters. Meanwhile, the girls struggle to remain a unit while also searching for individual identities. Despite stock characters, tween girls will find plenty to enjoy and relate to in the hospitable series-opener.
