It's a full-contact sport. Norval and Arnie are two of the stars on the Southside High football team. They're best friends off the field, too, and they're both hoping to play college ball some day. But Arnie has been acting weird lately. And Norval isn't the only one who has noticed. When Coach Green asks Norval to watch Arnie for signs of a concussion, it sounds like spyi ...more

I picked this book because it is short and I can relate to it. That is because one of the main characters, Arnie, suffered a concussion and can no longer play football. I can relate because I am no longer able to do gymnastics because of my concussion. I also picked it because I like reading books that are about sports.

The setting is mainly in the locker room or on the football field of Southside High. A small part of the story occurred in the hospital and in a rehabilitation center. There were

Norval is one of several Southside High football players hoping to attract the attention of the college scouts. If the scouts are interested, the scholarships that follow will guarantee college educations that would otherwise be almost impossible for the teens and their families to finance.

When Norval's friend and fellow player Arnie begins acting weird both on the field and off, he finds himself in an awkward position. Coach wants Norval to "spy" on Arnie and report any suspect behavior. The c

Norval is on a high school football team where many of the players' only chance to go to college is to get a football scholarship. Scouts come to many of the games, and Norval and his friend Aidan hope to impress them. When Aidan starts to act hostile and unfocused on and off the field, the coach asks Norval and another player to watch Aidan and report anything "off" that they see about his behavior. When Aidan suffers several more falls, his behavior becomes more alarming. Norval thinks he is b ...more
Looks cheap, terrible acting and it reeks of early 90's cheese.
Seriously, this movie looks like a pornograhy flick with how cheap it looks and nobody here will convince you that anything that's going on is actually happening. Gotta love Gary's silly haircut and the cheesy music. I'd suggest cheap purchase ONLY IF you like bad movies.
