The author dives into the world of high school football at a Glades Central in Belle Glade, Florida. The school has produced an amazing number of players who have gone on to the NFL. Narrator Dion Graham gives each sentence an emotional charge, so fitting for the drama and challenges the players and coaches face in this tough corner of the country. The author's close vantage of the city and its people yields an exceptional look at what is happening on and off the field. Graham is great with his voices for the coaches, who constantly try to motivate and teach the boys on the team. This is as much a sociological study as it is a football book, much in the vein of "Friday Night Lights." M.B. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2017]
