New York Times bestselling author and former Atlanta Falcon’s player Tim Green draws from his own experiences, both with the NFL and his ALS diagnosis, to tell a gripping football tale that will surely captivate middle-grade readers both old and new!

Ben Redd has football in his blood. His two older all-star brothers and their NFL dad are football royalty. So it was only natural that middle school quarterback Ben follow in their footsteps. Gifted with speed and a rocket arm, Ben dreams of being drafted into the NFL. And he has a real chance to shine this season, especially in the championship game against his team’s toughest rival.

But then Ben’s whole life is turned upside down when his dad is diagnosed with an incurable disease called ALS, no doubt triggered by those hard hits he took on the field. Ben’s mom is now determined to get Ben to quit football forever.

Ben isn’t playing just for himself, though. This could be his dad’s last time ever as his coach. And his teammates need a quarterback who can lead them to a victory. But as Ben grapples with the pressures of winning, and as he watches the heavy toll ALS is taking on his dad, he begins to question if this will truly be his final season.
