Being a player in the NFL has its drawbacks. For the average player, his career only lasts about four years, and sometimes, lives are ruined by injury. Kickers have more longevity and can survive up to fifteen years. However, even kickers must eventually admit their days in the football spotlight have come to an end. Kicker for the Indianapolis Colts-Matt Ridgeway is nearing the end of his career-he just doesn't know it yet. When draft season comes around, his team picks Clay Dinsmore in the second round. Clay is a star kicker out of Purdue and Matt must face a new reality. Twenty years ago, Matt was the young upstart who showed up ready to kick the competition "all the way to Detroit." This time, another youngster will try to do the same. Questions arise: is it time for Matt to call it quits? His wife waits in the wings, ready to take over his life, as his father-in-law offers him a job away from the NFL. Even his oldest friend-the kicker whose job Matt once stole-is telling him to step down. For Matt, though, football is life; it's all he's ever known. What's a guy to do when his path hits a dead end?

It’s America’s most popular sport, played by thousands, watched by millions, and generating billions in revenues every year. It’s also America’s most controversial sport, haunted by the specter of life-threatening injuries and plagued by scandal, even among its most venerable personalities and institutions. At the college level, we often tie football’s tales of corruption and greed to its current popularity and revenue potential, and we have vague notions of a halcyon time--before the new College Football Playoff, power conferences, and huge TV contracts. Perhaps we conjure images of young Ivy Leaguers playing a gentleman’s game, exemplifying the collegial in collegiate. What we don’t imagine is a game described in 1905, not today, as "a social obsession--this boy-killing, man-mutillating, education-prostituting, gladiatorial sport." In The Opening Kickoff, Dave Revsine tells the riveting story of the formative period of American football (1890-1915). It was a time that saw the game’s meteoric rise, fueled by overflow crowds, breathless newspaper coverage and newfound superstars—including one of the most thrilling and mysterious the sport has ever seen. But it was also a period racked by controversy in academics, recruiting, and physical brutality that, in combination, threatened football’s very existence. A vivid storyteller, Revsine brings it all to life in a captivating narrative.

EIGHT STORIES THAT CHAMPION THE SPIRIT OF A SPORT LIKE NO OTHER A young footballer struggles to make his mark even as he fights, the ruthless exploitation of local football clubs, his family’s strained financial circumstances and the humiliation of being the son of a man accused of deliberately throwing a winning goal in a long-ago match. A veteran player with an eclectic record prepares to play the final game of his career. A former star footballer battling grave illness relives the days of exhilarating wins and frustrating rivalries that sustain his spirit. And, on a turf slightly removed from the football field, a sportsman’s obsession over justice being done to a wronged fellow player leads him into penury. Featuring the acclaimed novellas Striker and Stopper, and all of Moti Nandy’s football-related short stories, this collection captures the heady highs and crushing lows, the heroism – and the ignominy – of sport.

"Hut! Hut! Go long, Tiki!" Tiki and Ronde's twelfth summer is winding down -- the nights are getting shorter and the evenings cooler. That means two things: The first day of junior high is just a few days away, and it's almost the start of football season at last. With two championships and an 8-2 season last year, Tiki and Ronde are ready to graduate from the Peewee League and hit the field as starting players for the Hidden Valley Eagles. But junior high is a lot bigger than elementary school. The competition for starting spots is stiff, and seniority rules. If Tiki and Ronde make it past tryouts and cuts, will they get the chance to play, or will they have to spend the season watching from the bench with the other seventh graders? Inspired by the childhood of NFL superstars Tiki and Ronde Barber, Kickoff! is a story of teamwork, perseverance, and what it takes to be a champion.

When one of Lainie Lovett’s closest friends suspects her husband of cheating on her, she turns to Lainie for help. He insists he’s innocent, but he’s seen leaving the Other Woman’s house—shortly before the Other Woman turns up dead, apparently killed after pigging out on Happy’s Hamburgers. Now he’s suspected of murder, and he begs Lainie to clear his name. How can she say no? His wife is the goalie of the Rockettes, Lainie’s soccer team. Lainie has to make sense of the victim’s blasé family and back-stabbing pals. Add to this the mysterious green car that keeps appearing in front of Lainie’s house, the romantic ups and downs of her flaky sister-in-law, the subtle pressure she’s feeling from her boyfriend, and kickoff week—the start of a new school year for Lainie and her fellow teachers. She also has to figure out why the victim, a devout vegetarian, would consume all those fast-food hamburgers. Whether it’s affection for family and friends, passion for teaching, enthusiasm for soccer, panic over a possibly straying husband, or a soul-deep craving for a greasy meat patty on a toasted bun… Ultimately, everything is about love. And love, Lainie learns, can cause a whole lot of trouble.
