Among the students at the school for the blind where Mary (Melissa Sue Anderson) works is Tom Carlin (Brad Wilkin), whose taciturn (and sighted) farmer father, Frank (John Ireland), has given Tom up as a total loss. Hoping to build Tom's self-confidence, Mary arranges for Tom to play with the football team at the less affluent of Winoka's two schools. Ultimately, Tom triumphs during a crucial game between his school and the "rich" one across town -- while the Ingalls' foster son, Albert (Matthew Laborteaux), briefly pulls duty as a "human football."
