Another exciting, fast-paced sports story from Fred Bowen featuring lots of play-by-play action.
Eighth-grader Matt Monroe knows he’s a shoo-in for starting quarterback for the Parkside Middle School football team this year.
Or is he?
Devro, a new seventh grader looks pretty impressive. He’s consistent and can run the plays almost as well as Matt. And he’s got speed.
As the fall football season unfolds, the team has more than its share of surprises and unexpected challenges, as well as plenty of victories and upsets on and off the field—all of which Matt records and analyzes in a journal he keeps for his English class. By the last kick off of the season, Matt has learned that a team is only as good as the sum of its part and that playing together is the only way to win.
Author Fred Bowen offers up another first-rate sports adventure featuring exciting play-by-play game action that will keep young readers on the edge of their seats. He also offers a fascinating look at the Green Bay Packers under legendary coach Vince Lombardi, through the published diary of offensive lineman Jerry Kramer who recorded the 1967 season.
