Overview

Deep Zone (Football Genius Series #5) by Tim Green

In the deep zone, even the very best player can find it impossible to beat a foe who’s hungry and waiting. . . .

Troy White can predict a play before it happens. Star quarterback on his state football team, Troy’s a natural for the 7-on-7 tournament that’s being held at the Super Bowl in Miami. With any luck, his “football genius” will also be working for the Atlanta Falcons on that big day.

Ty Lewis is a wide receiver with exceptional speed. His brother, an NFL star, says getting on a 7-on-7 team will prove Ty’s a winner.

From the moment the two football champs cross paths, Troy and Ty begin to size each other up. Troy is suspicious of Ty’s interest in his friend Tate, while Ty worries his speed will never be a match for Troy’s game smarts. But when the two rivals find themselves somehow tangled in the same dangerous web of deceit, they discover that they have more in common than their skill at football.

Uniting Troy, first seen in the New York Times bestselling Football Genius, and Ty, who was chased by the Mafia in Football Hero, Tim Green’s Deep Zone delivers it all—vivid settings, dynamic characters, and high-stakes action on and off the field.

About the Author

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.

This is my favorite book series. The ending is very unexpecting and happy. I would tell anyone who loves football or even just likes sports to read this series, which starts with Football Genius. I really hope that he makes another few for this series and starts a new football series.

It was very interesting how Ty and Troy are both connected to the mob. As soon as Ty and Troy meet, Troy makes sure Ty know he dislikes him. AND they will possibly play against each other on the 7 on 7 championship held on Super Bowl Sunday. Nice job Tim, you really created a masterpiece, but I didn't like the way you ended it. Overall good job though

In this book there is a kid named Tony. Tony was a football star that could sense a play before it happened. There is also a kid named Ty and his older brother Thane,that plays for the Jets,tells Ty that he needs to join a 7 on 7 football team because Ty is exceptionally fast. So he does and he just happens to join the same team as Tony. At first they don’t like each other but towards the end of the book they start to become friends. And that's a good thing because if two extremely good football players aren’t friends they won’t reach their full potential.

Hike! Ty, a young football star, raced down the field calling for the ball. If you enjoy reading about sports, Deep Zone, by Tim Green is the book for you. The book’s plot flows smoothly and is easy to understand. This book also has great suspense. One other thing about this book is the ending. The book had a great and unsuspected ending that I really liked. Deep Zone is one of the best books have ever read and I would definitely recommend it. Jake N.
