Eighth grader Matt Monroe is a shoo-in for starting quarterback for the Parkside Middle School football team this year. Or so he thinks. Devro, a new seventh grader, looks impressive. He's consistent and can run the plays almost as well as Matt. And he's got speed. Could he ruin Matt's chances of taking the position as quarterback? Utilizing Matt's journal, author Fred Bowen shows readers the importance of reflection and teamwork as one strives to be a better player.
In the afterword, Bowen shares the real story of Instant Replay: The Green Bay Diary of Jerry Kramer, a book by Green Bay Packers offensive lineman Jerry Kramer and sportswriter Dick Schaap covering the 1967 Green Bay Packers Super Bowl-winning season.
