Overview

Troy's got to fight hard if he wants to win big.

Troy's dreams of the big time have backfired. Sure, he's moved to New Jersey for his job as "genius" for the New York Jets, but his dad took his entire salary, leaving Troy and his mom broke. Now Troy has no hope of going to private school and playing football with his cousin Ty. Instead he's going to be part of a team with an unbroken losing streak. But Troy fights back.

When he gets Seth to come up from Atlanta to coach his team, Troy feels ready for a perfect season. He doesn't guess that he'll be struggling against those who want him to lose. When Troy's talent for calling plays slips and his abilities as a quarterback are threatened, he's got to dig deep. And it will take all of Troy's football genius to turn this team around.

Tim Green's eight years as a star NFL linebacker give an insider's edge to his sports thrillers.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jill Walton
Eighth grade Troy White is much more than a genius and an athlete. He is an ambitious teenager with a mysterious talent he uses in football games: he can predict the play of the opposing team before it happens. The owner of a major NFL team has employed Troy to use his genius, but Troy’s father absconded with the money and is in hiding. His father is a con man who delights in his own brilliance and has no regrets, but he is Troy’s father, after all. Troy and his mother pay the price and change their plans from private school and a winning football team to public high school and their dying football program. This book is the sixth in “The Football Genius” series. Troy lives for football but he cannot play it well without support. He needs a good coach and a team. The dilemma for Troy is how he is going to play the people who will make his eighth grade year a perfect season. Wonderful characters, hard choices, some mistakes, and personal revelations make the protagonist much more than a genius and an athlete. Readers, oung adult and all others, will be so satisfied and pleased to know Troy White. Reviewer: Jill Walton; Ages 12 up.

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.
