Everyone on the team calls him Cannonball because when he makes a bust, he's virtually unstoppable. Some of the boys also call him Jelly-Belly and The Blob, though never to his face. No one on the team can see past his size, and Junior has had enough. When team mentor Billy Slater sets the team a healthy-living assignment, Junior is determined to prove that there is more to him than meets the eye.
