Rocky's Uncle Joe, a well-known Quarterback, is going to speak to the Angel Grove Football team prior to thier latest battle with arch-enemies Stone Canyon.
A young boy called Alan, who wants to play for the team, finds himself in serious trouble when it is revealed he has problems reading, and causes several slip ups in his Chemistry Class, unless he improves, Mr. Wilton will see that he cannot play for the Angel Grove team INDEFINTALY.
Rocky volunteers to help Alan study, Wilton agrees.
Meanwhile, Lord Zedd and Rita create the Centiback monster, a creature made of a Centipede and the skils of a star player..none of course come from a canadian football player, Rocky encourages Alan in their study sessions by claming that his Uncle also had the same kind of problems Alan had, the Centiback monster attacks the playing feild, and starts transforming many of his victims into footballs, the Rangers arrvie to stop him, but have to battle some Tengas before they can take out the Football Fiend.
The Rangers play an evil football-style game with theTengas and Centiback, by the game's end, the Rangers are tranformed into Footballs courtesy of a Football-shaped beam fired by the Centiback, only Rocky survives. Rocky retreats to the Command Center, Rocky relaises he must turn the Centiback's beam's powers backwards to restore the Rangers to normal, he does so, but Centiback is turned giant by Zedd and Rita, the Ninja Megafalconzord kicks his butt.
Alan is diagnosed with dyslexia and will get the proper tutoring on how to deal with the problem, allowing him to stay on the Football team and improve on his grades.
