Über den Autor

Who is Jake Maddox? Athlete, author, world-traveler – or all three? He has surfed in Hawaii, scuba-dived in Australia, and climbed the mountains of Peru and Alaska. His books range from the most popular team sports to outdoor activities to survival adventures and even to auto racing. His exploits have inspired numerous writers to walk in his footsteps – literally! Each of his stories is stamped with teamwork, fair play, and a strong sense of self-worth and discipline. Always a team-player, Maddox realizes it takes more than one man (or woman) to create a book good enough for a young reader. He hopes the lessons learned on the court, field, or arena and the champion sprinter pace of his books can motivate kids to become better athletes and lifelong readers.

Logan! his dad’s voice called. The door to the TV room opened.

Logan’s father was a very big man. In fact, Logan took after his dad, which was one of the reasons Logan was a good linebacker.

Logan’s dad was over six feet tall, and weighed about three hundred pounds. When he walked into the room, he huffed from his nose. Logan always thought it made him look like a bull.

Logan, what are you doing down here all alone? his dad asked.

What does it look like I’m doing? Logan said. He glanced at his father, then back at the TV. I’m watching TV.

His dad sighed and then dropped down on the couch next to Logan. He put his big hand onto Logan’s shoulder and
