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.

Huh? Andrew replied.

Dad laughed. I think that you’ve been daydreaming again, he said. What are you thinking about this time?

Andrew sighed. Same as ever, he said.

The truth was, Andrew wasn’t an all-star wide receiver. He played for the junior high football team, and he even got to start most games. But he was lucky if he made one reception per game and one touchdown per season.

The real all-star was Andrew’s brother, Marcus. Andrew and his dad were at the Westfield High School Wildcats game right now, and Andrew was dreaming that he was as great as his brother.

Marcus was the one with college and pro scouts watching him. Marcus was the one with adoring fans.

Marcus was the one who had just scored the game-winning touchdown . . . again. It was Marcus’s tenth
