Overview

A miserable memory dogs Keith's every move Keith Stedman dropped the pass. The game-winning, undefeated-record-making pass that would have made him a hero instead of a loser.

Best book ever. Football is a very fun sport. I play tackle football as wide reciever and I had the same experience as kieth did. But this book made me get back on my feet and I won the super bowl with a last second pass thrown to me and I leaped into the air and caught it. It was remarkable. I owe it all to this book. This book is one of my favorites. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go to football practice. It was nice talking about this book for a while. Once again check this book out and I recomend it for football lovers and people who like comebacks. Now I have to practice with my city team Raiders (not oakland raiders) my team is located in the new england section and I have to practice bye! =)

I believe that Football Nightmare is a great book because it never stops you from reading it. It is also a very exciting book because the main character named Keith dropped the game-winning, undefeated pass and then he becomes a hero during the first game of the next season after he decides not to quit. I recommend this book for kids that enjoy football and should never give up.

Football Nightmare is a great book. It teaches you to overcome your fears. In the book a boy named Keith dropped a game winning pass, and all the fans booed him. When the next season came around he was scared to play, but he overcame his fears and had a great season. It was very action packed. It was fun and easy to read. It kept me interested Throughout the whole book, and most of all it is about football. You can tell this book was well thought out. I bet you would enjoy this book as much as I did, because it teaches a very good lesson. I also think you¿ll like it because in some parts you can relate to it. This is a book that boys and girls both can enjoy. That¿s why I think everyone should read this book.
