Sam is excited when his football team, the Cowboys, beat their rivals, the Giants, with his last second touchdown, and are the only undefeated team in their league. When the whole team gets together at Sam's house for a celebratory viewing of the game on video, they discover that the touchdown shouldn't have counted. Now, they will have to decide whether or not to inform the league, the other team, and their coach about their discovery.

I love watching football, but I rarely read books about foot

Every sports story has that "Uh-Oh" moment, when everything that was sure becomes unsure, when everything is on the line. Sports are that way, so sports stories, at least the good ones, are as well. This Fred Bowen beauty has the best kind of uh-oh moment. You will never see it coming, and when it happens, you won't believe you didn't see it coming.

What happens if you are playing a game, you win and then find out a mistake was made. This is what happened to Sam's team the Cowboys. He has to make some tough decisions as do the rest of his team. This book is all about doing the right thing. I really enjoyed it.
Really good book, especially for athletes. if your into books such as dragons and stuff, not such a great book.
