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?

This book is set in the small town of Johnstown .
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.
I think the book is a good book because it is full of suspense and interesting.

He's on the school football team. Usually his teammates treat him okay and stand up for Ray. It's the coach that has a problem with Ray and doesn't mind publicly showing his feelings towards him.

I truly enjoyed reading Cobra Strike about a boy named Linden that had a stuttering problem. I truly enjoyed this book for 2 reasons: 1) I read a book about a kid that stuttered before this it was called Paperboy and I compared both of them during the reading in how they lived differently with a stutter problem , and that gave me a better understanding of the book. 2) It taught me a good lesson through out the book. I would recommend this book to someone that enjoys reading about sports mystery

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.
