As a current student of Syracuse University, I was quickly able to resonate with this novel and become hooked after reading the first chapter.  The story of Colt Walker is an excellent portrayal of how greed and the yearning for money can cause a person to spiral out of control and lose sight of his dreams.  Although the book is about sports, any reader would be able to enjoy it because everyone can  relate to what it feels like to face hard times.  Michael Balkind and Ryan Burr come together to create a beautiful piece of literature in which is not only informative when it comes to the life of sports and gambling, but also makes for an extremely exciting read.  I very much enjoyed reading this novel and found many parts to be truly inspiring!  I look forward to reading more books by Michael Balkind and Ryan Burr as they are the type of writers that can capture the reader immediately and always keep them wondering what will happen next!

To say that i enjoyed this book is an understatement.  I am not a big reader, but when i get interested in a book, i cant put it down.  I was totally involved in this book from the beginning and it kept me on the edge with each chapter i read.  I became so engrossed in a  characters actions within a  chapter, then had to wait to find out more a few chapters later. I found myself wanting to fast forward to find out the outcome of many things.   Thank you my friend for allowing me the sneak preview and the opportunity to share my opinions with others.  The book was very well written and the order of which things happen was perfect.  I found it very easy to become part of any character, This book is a winner

Touchdown!...Balkind and Burr toss you not only a winning sports novel, but they also have you come face-to-face with the dirty underbelly of the gambling arena.  You will be hooked by this addicting page turner with its depth of character, unexpected twists and turns and surprise ending.  Karen L.

This story could easily be a headline in the upcoming sports pages.  Fantastic story of good ol' boy working hard to do right, but getting mixed up with the wrong crowd and over his head.  A must read for any football fan, or any fan of college sports for that matter.  Engaging characters, true to life situations, and a story that will make you rethink the headlines regarding college sports.
