Tim Green, for many years a star defensive end with the Atlanta Falcons, is a man of many talents. He's the author of such gripping books for adults as the New York Times bestselling The Dark Side of the Game and American Outrage. Tim graduated covaledictorian from Syracuse University and was a first-round draft pick. He later earned his law degree with honors, and he has also worked as an NFL commentator for FOX Sports and NPR.

His first book for young readers, Football Genius, inspired in part by his players and his own kids, became a New York Times bestseller and was followed by Football Hero, Football Champ, The Big Time, and Deep Zone. He drew on his experiences playing and coaching Little League for Rivals and Pinch Hit and two more New York Times bestsellers: Baseball Great and Best of the Best.

Bestselling author Jon Scieszka called Tim Green's Unstoppable, a book about a boy's struggle with cancer that debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, "Absolutely heroic. And something every guy should read."

Tim Green lives with his wife, Illyssa, and their five children in upstate New York.

This book is about a boy named troy who has just met his father and wants him to represent him and help him get money. Troy has won the state championship and is now playing in a border battle all star team where he gets mad because he does not start. Troy soon finds out that his father is in trouble and he can stop jail time if he helps. I liked how the author was persistent with the quotes he put in and i liked that. I disliked how the author made the mom hate the dad. I would recommend this book to anyone that has read the first 2 and to football lovers everywhere.
