From the Publisher

New York Times bestselling author and former NFL player Tim Green scores a touchdown with this exhilarating and action-packed story about an ordinary boy who becomes a hero you can really root for. Perfect for fans of Mike Lupica.

Twelve-year-old Troy White has a phenomenal gift: He can predict football plays before they even happen. Any position. Any player. Any team.

When Troy's single mom gets a job working for the Atlanta Falcons, Troy sees this as an opportunity to show what he can do. But first he has to get to the Falcons—and with tight security and a notoriously mean coach, even his mom's field passes aren't much help.

Then Troy and his best friends devise a plan to get the attention of star linebacker Seth Halloway. With Seth's playing and Troy's genius, the Falcons could be unstoppable if they'll only listen. But if he can’t convince Seth he’s telling the truth, the Falcons’ championship and his mom’s job are at risk.

We the Fans

Sue Hendrix and Sylvia Giacomuzzi met in the lunchroom at Chicago’s Taft High School back in the 1970s, and their friendship stuck, through bad perms and bad breakups. Each home game, they load into Sylvia’s minivan for the drive to Soldier Field. Even on a snowy Sunday, Sue (left, smiling) is the optimist, believing every season that the Bears will be in the Super Bowl, but it’s been a hard year. She got laid off from her marketing job, and her mother has been sick. Sylvia, a lawyer, calls regularly to check in on her friend. She loves the village they’re a part of in Section 250—in 2012 she
