The book is about a young high school player who plays football for his school and they just got a star quarterback who may or may not help them win the season. He finds out about this deadly coal-mining danger at his Gram’s house that may cost him his football career.

This was a good sports book. It was very interesting the whole time and because the main character Roy Linden was in high school I could relate better. If you like football it this is a good book for you. I would recommend it to any sports fan.

Roy Linden's stutter keeps him from making friends, but he can't blame it for keeping him from a football scholarship. His problem in that area is the fact that their high school quarterback can't throw, and the team isn't winning games. When Waymen Whitley, star quarterback, comes to town, Roy finds a good teammate and a friend who is willing to look past his stutter. When a major problem comes to his attention, will Roy risk a scholarship and his friendship to reveal a corrupt business?
