Football Champ (Football Genius Novels)by Tim Green
Synopses & Reviews
When Troy White proved his remarkable football genius to the Atlanta Falcons, they brought him on board as a team consultant. Now, thanks to Troy's ability to predict winning plays, the Falcons are pulling in victories. Troy loves his starring role behind the scenes and the thrill of having NFL star linebacker Seth Halloway (who's dating Troy's mom) to coach his own Duluth Tigers team on their way to a state championship.
Then Troy's perfect world comes crashing down. Reporter Brent Peele is out to smear as much mud on the Falcons as he can, and that means going after Troy. The vicious media storm that descends on the football genius threatens not only his job with the Falcons and the Tigers' run at a championship but his mother's career--and Seth's--as well.
Together with his best friends, loyal Nathan and feisty Tate, Troy sets out to unmask the dishonest Peele--and save Seth's reputation--no matter what the risk.
With his signature blend of thrilling action and insider knowledge, Tim Green shows Troy, hero of the New York Times bestselling Football Genius, in a new and riveting adventure.
This companion to the "New York Times"-bestselling "Football Genius" featuresTim's memorable hero Troy and delves into the flashy world of American sportsmedia, revealing its dark underside.
Most people think that Troy White works for the NFL Atlanta Falcons as a ball boy, but the team knows the truth. Troy is a "football genius," with the extraordinary ability to predict an opposing team's next moves. With Troy calling the winning plays, the Falcons are on their way to the playoffs. And thanks to the coaching of Seth Halloway, the Falcon's star linebacker, and the talents of best friends Nathan and Tate, Troy's own team is on its way to the junior league football state championships!
But then reporter Brent Peele starts smearing the team. Suddenly, the media storm surrounding Troy threatens not only his own NFL career, but Seth's and his mother's, too.
