In 1967, in the small, wind-swept town of Penny out in West Texas, Bobby Hargrove’s high school football career ended before it ever got off the ground.

Inspired by his best friend, Dilly, and a most unexpected admirer named Meg, Bobby anxiously awaits the chance to prove himself and guide the Pirates to victory.
“Grab yourself a big ol’ glass of sweet tea and sit back for an afternoon of enjoyable readin’. This book has it all: Hard-nosed football, heartfelt romance and enough laughs to fill a No. 2 washtub.
