#1 New York Times bestseller Mike Lupica tackles football

Will Tyler can fly on a football field. He may not be the biggest running back around, but no one can touch him when it comes to hitting the hole and finding the end zone. And no one can match his love of the game. When Will has a football in hand, he may as well be flying for real because life can't touch him - his dad isn't so defeated, his town isn't so poor, and everyone has something to cheer for. All of which does him no good if the football season is canceled. With no funding for things like uniforms and a cared-for playing field, with seemingly every other family moving to find jobs, there simply isn't enough money or players for a season. Unless one kid can rally an entire town and give everyone a reason to believe . . .

For fans of his bestselling novels Travel Team and Million-Dollar Throw, Mike Lupica delivers a feel-good sports story that will have readers cheering where they sit.

There's plenty of action for sports fans, and readers will root for Will and his teammates till the very last page. -School Library Journal

F]ootball fans will.respond to the detailed and exciting game action once the season gets rolling and find inspiration in Will and his teammates' tenacity. -Publisher's Weekly

Will's ingenuity and loyalty are encouraging, causing readers to want to cheer him on as he makes his dream come true. -VOYA

   Most Amazing Author EVER!!!
I think this is an extremely good book, because I thought the storyline and the main and supporting characters are very interesting. Taking part in sports like football my self can understand the feeling of having the entire game on the line and in your hands. Mike Lupica is my favourite author and has written some of my favourite books, including Heat and Travel Team.
   If you have a child that is in to sports then I highly recommend these books
My 10 year old son loves all books by Mike Lupica. If you have a child who is into sports, I highly recommend these books.
   The Underdogs Book
My sons are not big readers, but really enjoy reading the book series by Mike Lupica. I continue to read these books as long as they continue with the desire to purchase on their own. I would recommend these books to anyone who has a child interested in sports, but not so interested in reading. You won 't believe how these books will make them pick up the book and read with out being asked.
   I read it with him and loved the characters and the story
Very appropriate and fun to read at age.
   A Feel Good Book for the Ages
This book is not edgy or emo. This book does not have any sex or drugs in it. I like it in this way. This book is good, clean and inspirational. It is a total good book that might make you read ALLL the other Mike Lupica books out there.
   Good book with solid
I would have loved this in the fourth grade, and it reminds me of some of the books I read then, like the Eddie series. Adults : Not so much for adults. Kid is overly wise for the 7th grade and everything works out in the end because the kids meant well and tried hard. Nice lesson, of course, but has nothing to do with real life. In fairness, the father does represent this perspective. Still a bit naive for anyone beyond the high school. Get it, but get it for your kids.
