Overview

Go Long! by Ronde Barber, Tiki Barber

Tiki and Ronde were the stars of their Pee Wee football team, the Cave Springs Vikings. But middle school is much bigger than elementary school and it’s a whole different game—on and off the field. When Coach Spangler takes a job coaching for the high school team and Tiki’s old science teacher Mr. Wheeler is tapped for the middle school coaching job, the beginning of the school year and the football season is off to a bumpy start. But through working together, the boys discover that the whole team is bigger than any of its parts.

GO LONG! is a football story starring Tiki and Ronde Barber as young, up-and-coming players. This fast-paced, inspirational sports tale is sure to be popular with the middle grade crowd. Tiki and Ronde draw on their early years in the sport to encourage young people to use their talents and play the game with a sense of fair play and teamwork.

The story begins as Tiki and Ronde start their 8th-grade year. They are anxious to take the field as starters this year, but the coach upsets the entire team when he announces that he is moving up to coach the high school team. Sure that all of their previous success has been due to his excellent coaching abilities, the players nervously await the naming of their new coach. It is a surprise to all when the history teacher, Mr. Wheeler, is given the job. He is a terrific teacher, but that doesn't guarantee anything about his coaching skills.

Tiki and Ronde try to roll with the punches when the first few games end in defeat; however, Cody, the team's quarterback, is not being a team player. Cody argues with Coach Wheeler and questions his every move, causing team morale to sink to an all-time low. It is not until Tiki and a few loyal players take the time to get to know Coach Wheeler and his plans for the team that things start to look more positive for a winning season.

GO LONG! presents a message of cooperation and team spirit, and that along with a strong plot line and likeable characters make it a book that won't gather much dust on the shelf.

i was in the book store and this book caught my eye. i bought it for my son. he is in the kintergarden, and started playing flag football this year. i can tell already that i have a football guru on my hands.i read it to him at night and we love it. i think it is a great way to help kids understand all the goes in to being an athlete. it more than just throwing the ball around and having fun, it's work! it is also teaching him about being a good teammate,and about dealing with other personalities on a team, about being serious when he is on the feild, and listening to a coachig staff. what else can i say im glad he want to pick up a book. we cant wait to finish it and get the other books. keep up the good work. it is wonderful that the barbers are sharing their stories with everyone

I own the whole series and every single book is great. If you want to read the series in order it goes like this kickoff, go long, wildcard, redzone, goal line, & endzone. I hope you enjoy and like the series the same way I did.
