Overview

The story centers on the trials and tribulations a young man must encounter when deciding to coach at such a young age. The story also shares the love of the game and focuses on the dramatic season. I was given a group of children no one else picked because they felt the boys were not talented enough. As a team we grew together and bonded to become league champions.

What makes this story unique is that there has never been a book written about a man so young who decided to take on a castoff team. It is a true underdog story that captures the reader from the very beginning, giving them a reason to root for the main character, as well as the team. The players themselves had to overcome amazing obstacles of prejudice and mistreatment, not only on the field, but also in their personal lives. Several players came from broken homes and it was the memories of that summer that proved to be the best of their childhood.

The story takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride of a summer when believing in yourself, and each other, would prove victorious against strong odds. This book is not intended solely for sports fans; however it is intended for non-sports fans as well. The many elements of human spirit would make it a must read for anyone looking to believe in themselves or for those who simply enjoy feel good stories.
