Troy's got to think fast--if he doesn't want to get banned from the NFL for life.

Most people think that Troy White works for the NFL Atlanta Falcons as a ball boy, but the team knows the truth. Troy is a "football genius," with the extraordinary ability to predict an opposing team's next moves. With Troy calling the winning plays, the Falcons are on their way to the playoffs. And thanks to the coaching of Seth Halloway, the Falcon's star linebacker, and the talents of best friends Nathan and Tate, Troy's own team is on its way to the junior league football state championships!

But then reporter Brent Peele starts smearing the team. Suddenly, the media storm surrounding Troy threatens not only his own NFL career, but Seth's and his mother's, too.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Green sends the 12-year-old savant introduced in Football Genius (2007) into the national spotlight in this second sequel. Proud of his unfailing ability to predict football plays, Troy naively grants a solo interview to an unscrupulous reporter and finds himself along with his NFL linebacker friend, Seth publicly accused of cheating. Not only are the play-off hopes of their pro team (the Atlanta Falcons) and Troy's own Duluth Tigers threatened but so are the careers of Seth and Troy's mother, who works in the Falcons' PR department. Readers will enthusiastically cheer Troy on as he heroically rises to every occasion, both on and off the field.--Peters, John Copyright 2009 Booklist"
