Paul Fisher loves playing soccer, and he wants to sign up for the Lake Windsor High School team. There's just one problem—a very big problem, as it turns out: Paul's legally blind. His serious visual impairment means he's not able to follow the action of a game very well. As a goalie, Paul occupies a very important strategic role on the field of play: he needs to be able to keep a close eye on things, the better to stop the opposing team from scoring. So if Paul's going to be an effective member of the team, he's going to need some special equipment.
This comes in the shape of some specially-made goggles that Paul wears during a game to help him see better. Unfortunately, Paul doesn't get a chance to wear them because, as he's legally blind, he's not permitted by his new high school to play soccer.
