Crack Back
By: John Coy
In football there are a lot of terms that are associated with the game, however, there¿s only one thing that comes from the outside and obliterates you if you don¿t see it in time, a crack back block. The book Crackback is written by John Coy and is centered on the main character, Miles Manning. Miles isn¿t the most intelligent person in his grade, yet alone the most stud-knockout boy either, but there is one special talent that pertains to him. He is 5 foot 8 and weighs 155lbs, and did I forget to mention this boy is really good at football which is why he is a starting junior WR at Confluence High School. This is not an ordinary high school football team, it is an extraordinary one that is the favorite to win their division, conference, and go to State¿s and win them too. Now from being a junior and to have those credentials everyone especially his coaches and his dad are pushing him to get to the top of the mountain and reach his full potential by getting bigger, faster, stronger, and tougher. This boy isn¿t finished there, he is then faced with even bigger and tougher decisions from girls to his friends and best one to his family. The type of theme that best fits this book is overcoming challenges, without a doubt. Miles is faced with football, peer pressure, family issues, girl issues, and friend issues. Yet with all these surrounding issues Miles overcome each challenge that he was faced with and each one he overcame was through choosing the right path. The book showed by not being afraid and not giving in you can overcome. Finally, an appropriate age group for this book would be from grades 6 to 9 because they could relate the most to it and really gain wisdom and knowledge from one he was faced with and what to do when these problems occur.

This book was pretty good. It kept you reading and put you in the position of what a good football player can sometimes do to make himself better. If you'd like to see what kind of life a football player has, read this book.

The book crackback by John Coy is about a teen, Miles Manning, who a high school football player. Throughout the book Miles has to make many tough decisions and balance school, sports, and girls. He also has to please his father who does not give him many compliments. His football season starts well until he gets a new head coach. This is Coach Stahl who is very arrogant. After one mistake he gets benched. Throughout this time he meets a girl named Lucia who he likes very much and this is one thing that goes well for him. While on the bench Miles meets a new group of friends, but during this time him and his best friend Zach are pushed apart. This happens because Zach uses performance enhancing drugs which Miles does not want to be a part of. His new group of friends do fun stuff together, but one night Miles decides to do these things on his own and gets beat up. After sitting on the bench for many games Miles finally gets his chance to play again. On the final play of the game to decide if they make it to the playoffs Miles is supposed to play safety on an extra point, but decides to go for the block. In doing so he won his team the game. Afterwards in the locker room Coach Stahl says Miles will not play another game that year for not doing what he said even though Miles won them the game. Miles knows he did the right thing and that Coach Stahl is just going to be that way. Even his dad who is usually focusing on what Miles does wrong agrees with him. I would highly suggest this book for anyone who likes sports. John Coy also does a good job of showing how high school can be and what you have to do to get through it.

Crackback by John Coy is about a guy named Miles Manning. Miles is a football player, but when he finds out that his whole team is using steroids and one of them is his best friend. Zack offers him steroids but Miles refuses, but Zack does not want to be his friend because of it. Miles meets another guy, he teaches him how to peek through cars in the park at night. Miles gets caught and gets beat up for spying on this guy and his girlfriend. He meets this girl, he likes her. He takes her out on a few dates, and she pretty much falls in love with him and so did he. His friend eventually talks to him after the last game, he tells Miles who to cover and to watch out for the crackback. He eventually gets back in the game and leads the team to victory. Coach tells the team he has prostate cancer and the doctor told him to not be in to much stress. He gives up his head coach spot. Another coach takes his spot and he only cares about winning. Miles leads the team to the champion ship and they win.
