Publisher's Summary

Football genius Troy White is back in a new adventure that mixes NFL thrills with high-stakes junior high games made just as exciting by the storytelling power of best-selling author Tim Green.

Troy and his pals Tate and Nathan are leading their team toward a possible state championship. At the same time Troy’s gift for predicting an opposing team’s plays is helping Seth Halloway lead the Falcons on a march toward glory. Then everything is endangered by a sleazy reporter with a grudge against Seth who will do anything to get a story.

Now it’s up to Troy and his friends to make things right. To do so will mean facing great danger and - even harder - making tough choices. Being a champ takes head and heart, Seth teaches Troy. Will Troy have enough of both to solve the mess he’s in the middle of?

Critic Reviews

"The unexpected appearance of Troy's biological father in the final chapter sets up the next book in the series. While the novel's premise is somewhat outlandish, the characters are engaging and the game action is exciting. Short cliff-hanger chapters make this a good bet for reluctant readers." ( School Library Journal)

I love this series

Tim Green has written an excellent series with each but getting better than the ones before. I can’t speak highly enough for the interesting storyline, excellent writing, and the wonderful characters. I recommend this series to anyone who loves sports and children books. Although I am an adult I really enjoyed the series. This series will keep anyone interested. I couldn’t put it down!
