Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
Football is a sport that involves amazing athletic prowess, bruising working conditions, a gritty tradition, and a host of record making or breaking performances. Played on a gridiron that is calibrated by yards, football is a natural feeding ground for measureable performances and records. In this encyclopedic publication readers are offered a compilation of some of the most impressive records in areas of team and individual performance through the 2011 season. If you are interested in knowing which running back holds the career or individual game records for yardage, touchdowns, or carries feel free to find the necessary information in this book. If you are more interested in quarterbacks or receivers and their record setting accomplishments you will find all that information in the pages of this book. Similarly, team statistics, with a particular focus on Super Bowl records, are also presented. Also included are concise stories about particular players or teams and the record setting efforts they made. The end result of all this information is a book that will be enjoyed by football fans young and old. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck; Ages 10 to 14.
