From the Publisher:
Troy White has a phenomenal gift. He can predict football plays before they happen. Any position. Any player. Any team.
When Troy's single mom gets a job working in public relations for the Atlanta Falcons, Troy figures it's his chance to prove 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.
Bestselling author and former NFL player Tim Green scores a touchdown with this exhilarating novel, his first for young readers. Football Genius is an action-packed adventure with gripping suspense, a hero you can really root for, and an insider's look at the world of professional football.
At 12 years old, Troy White is a stymied football player with a bizarre, valuable ability: he can foresee ball plays. Luckily, he lives next door to Atlanta Falcons linebacker Seth Halloway, who might be just the person to help him live his dreams. At the same time, deep-rooted issues surrounding his father's desertion of the family continue to trouble Troy. Author Tim Green is a former defensive end on the Atlanta Falcons and the author of many adult novels.
