Summary
Small but fast twelve-year-old Will Tyler, an avid football player in the down-and-out town of Forbes, Pennsylvania, takes matters into his own hands to try and finance the city's football team, giving the whole community hope in the process
Summary
Seventh-grader Will Tyler has been itching to redeem himself for the fumble that cost his team a championship win last year. But when his struggling hometown can't come up with the money to finance youth-league football, it seems as though Will won't get that chance -- at least not without a little help. Will writes a letter to the chairman of a major sneaker company, asking for (and getting) corporate sponsorship...but with so many families leaving town to find jobs, will there even be enough kids to play? With plenty of exciting gridiron action and a dramatic, inspiring story, The Underdogs is a fast-paced, feel-good read. -- Description by Ellen Foreman
