Product Overview

In the tradition of Buzz Bissinger''s Friday Night Lights, a sensitive and clear-eyed journalist takes us deep inside Oregon''s only all-Hispanic boys'' high school soccer team, a team whose players stand on the cusp of change.
The all-Hispanic boys'' soccer team from Woodburn High has made the playoffs for nineteen straight years--but they''ve never won a championship. As they prepare to make it twenty, one thing will become clear: "Los Perros" play the beautiful game with heart, pride, and their lives on the line. More than just riveting sports writing, "The Boys from Little Mexico" is about the fight for the future of the next generation--and a hard, true look at boys dismissed as gang-bangers, told to "go home" by lily-white sideline crowds. The wins and losses they notch along the way spin a striking tale about what it takes to capture the American Dream.
