You've Got to Be a Football Hero is the twelfth episode of The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air's fourth season which was first broadcast on November 29, 1993.


When Jackie goes to Hank Farley's birthday party, Will tries to prevent her from hooking up with him with his annoying habits which lead him to being challenged to a drinking contest. Carlton tried to prevent this from happening but Will defies him and makes a fool of himself by drinking too much alcohol causing him to pass out. After Hank and his friends stranded him in a grave yard for his stupidity, Will is met by some ghosts, one of which is a boy killed by a drunk driver. Afterwards, Carlton came and took Will back to the house and Will swears that he will never drink again.


  • This is the only episode where Will drinks alcohol.
  • This is the last episode Jackie appears in. Suppose it's because she wanted to get away from Will for good.
