If his life depended on it he couldn’t see himself looking into the coach’s eyes and admitting that. Coach Higgins worked with the offense and Coach Dekay with the defense

  • I purchased this for a student who is usually only interested in books related to some kind of racing. He finished it within a week and when I asked if he liked it, he said "Are you kidding me? I LOVE it!" I am happy to finally have found a book that he will read that will expand his interests a bit.

  • A fun quick read for my football loving son! He couldn't put it down!

  • my son loves these books! Great author!

  • Good book for my 8 year old boy. He's been reading it and always wondering who's gonna win and what's going to happen next. Very exiting.

  • Another great book.

  • For any boy who likes football or plays the game. Boots writes to his brother in the military about what is happening at football and his brother helps him through his letter.

  • This book was interesting for people who like football, but if you don't, do not read it. It has a lot of funky plays and calls you wouldn't understand. Overall though, this book was good.

  • Not bad
