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.

    " This book reminds me of an after school TV special. Will Tyler's town is "going out of business" and the money for his football team has been cut. Will finds a sponsor for his team, talks his dad into coaching the team, finds players for the team, and even when they are down, he has the heart to keep everyone together. The football metaphors were too much for me, but if I were a 10-12 year old boy, I would love this book. "

    " This was a very good book because it was about a kid that had a passion for football and didn't let it go away because something was keeping it from him. His town was without money for football, so he came up with the courage to call New Balance to be able to supply his team with gear. That is where it all started for his team. They won as a team and never got down on themselves, in the end he got his dream of making it to the league championship. This was a very good book and maybe one of my favorites. "
