Gr 5-8-- Here's a book full of amazing stories that may have made headlines in local newspapers, but have been forgotten over the years. Readers are sure to find their favorite sport among the wide variety that Nash and Zullo have chosen to represent courage and sportsmanship. In one selection, a boxer was knocked down 27 times, but still won. In another, a college football player caught the game-winning touchdown pass with two broken hands. And there's still more dream material for would-be athletes when the authors tell the inspiring story of the seventh player of a high school basketball team who came off the bench in the final 30 seconds of regular play, tied the score with a buzzer beating shot, and repeated this feat two more times when the game went into the third overtime. Readers of the authors' previous books, such as Sports Hall of Shame (Archway, 1990), will eagerly snatch up this one and ask about others. --Blair Christolon, Prince William Library, Manassas, VA
