Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Pat Trattles
Often the player who gets the most attention on an NFL team is the quarterback. As the team leader he gets the credit for wins, and blame for losses. Quarterbacks do not' win games on their own, however. Ten other players make up the offensive line. Each is important in helping his team gain yards and score points. Those players are introduced here. Short biographical sketches of eight key offensive players make up the bulk of the text. Highlighted are New York Jets Center, Nick Mangold; Offensive Tackle Ryan Clady of the Denver Broncos; Adrian Peterson, Running Back of the Minnesota Vikings; Tennessee Titans Running Back, Chris Johnson; Le'Ron McClain, Baltimore Ravens Running Back; Houston Texans' Wide Receiver, Andre Johnson; Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona Cardinals' Wide Receiver; and Dallas Clark, Indianapolis Colts' Tight End. Each biography includes personal statistics such as birthplace, college attended, number of Pro Bowls played, height and weight; a discussion of that player's contribution to football as well as highlighting a big game or big play from his career. A full color photo of the player in action accompanies each biographical sketch. Back matter includes a diagram of the offensive line with short descriptions of the main jobs of the various offensive positions, a glossary of the football jargon contained in the text, a bibliography, suggestions for further reading in print and online, and a comprehensive index. Part of the "Football-O-Rama" series from Bearport Publishing, this book is a must read for the eight to twelve year old football fan. Reviewer: Pat Trattles
