The Underdogs

Sportswriter, Mike Lupica, is back with another great football story.  Will Tyler loves football; he's the fastest kid in Forbes, and running down a football field to make the winning play is the best feeling in the world.

The problem is that everything and everyone in Forbes, Pennsylvania, is running down and losing hope.  They can't even fund the city youth football teams this year, but will refuses to give up hope.  The neighboring town, Castle Rock, beat Will's team by a slim margin last year, and Will blames himself for the loss.

Now he's got a plan to find an unlikely financial backer for the team, but he still has to get enough players to field a team.  Can Will and his Underdogs inspire themselves and a town that's down on it's luck to believe again?

This is a great story with plenty of play by play football action!  If you enjoy this book, try one of Mike Lupica's other books.
