To achieve his dream of playing football at BYU, Dane Jordan has to get out of this small Oregon town . . .

Moving from California to Oregon was difficult for Dane Jordan, a high school senior who longs to play for BYU football. From making new friends to adjusting to a new school, Dane has much to learn about living in a small town – like the amount of gossip that can go around school in less than 5 minutes. Or how one small act of friendship can change a life forever. To make things even more challenging, Dane must do everything he can to be noticed on the football field on a team already replete with stars, in order to receive a scholarship from BYU and achieve his lifelong dream. Dane soon discovers that life has some very unexpected twists, on and off the field.

Darnell Dickson, sports editor of the Prove Daily Herald, has taken his expertise in football and penned it into this exciting novel. Football fans will enjoy being on the field with Dane as he tackles his problems with poise and class. Filled with humor, football, and realistic characters, this book allows each of us to cheer Dane on as he works toward his dream.
