The Late Hit

(4) YA Gridiron series. A former-soccer-player girl learns to become a kicker (Extra); a senior running back loses his spot to the new kid (False); a competitive linebacker considers pushing his concussed teammate back into a game (Hit). While lacking meaty plot lines, lessons about overcoming individual trials and practicing good sportsmanship are woven through these football-focused hi-lo novels. There are three other fall 2017 books in this series. Review covers these Gridiron titles: The Late Hit, False Start, and The Extra Point.
