Sintesi dell'editore

Running back Mick Johnson has dreams: dreams of cutting back, finding the hole, breaking in to the open, and running free with nothing but green grass ahead. He has dreams of winning and of being the best. But football is a cruel sport. It requires power, grace, speed, quickness, and knowledge of the game. It takes luck, too. One crazy bounce can turn a likely victory into sudden defeat. What elite athlete wouldn’t look for an edge? A way to make him bigger, stronger, faster?

This novel explores the dark corners of the heart of a young football player as he struggles for success under the always glaring - and often unforgiving - stadium lights.

“A solid sports tale with a valuable message.” ( Kliatt)
“Deuker skillfully complements a sobering message with plenty of exciting on-field action.... [A] solid addition to the sports fiction shelf.” ( Booklist)

Memories

I read this back in high school. Just as good, if not better listening to it 10years later.

Terribly lame morality play...

Poorly written, completely predictable, irritatingly voiced tripe designed for 13 year olds. Don't waste your valuable time. If that's not bad enough, the protagonist is a total putz.
