"More than anything else Boots Raymond wanted to be a quarterback. But when he joined the Apollos football team he was bitterly disappointed. Because of his size and the League regulations, he couldn't be a quarterback and the coach assigned him as a tackle. Miserable in this position, Boots fumed at being restricted to the line and it wasn't long before the coach took him to task for his attitude. After a while, and some good advice from his brother, Boots found that there was plenty of challenge in playing tackle.
This is another fast-moving sports story by the popular author Matt Christopher. Young readers will enjoy this story of how any player can become extremely valuable to his team."
