When Dunbar High head coach Tony Wilson gets cancer, Julius Crawford, an unknown in coaching circles, is chosen by the athletic director to take over the team. At first the players balk at the new hire and his "ball sharing" offense, claiming that he doesn't have what it takes to be a head coach. Coach Crawford battles his own past while trying to convince the team to play together. Can Coach Crawford seek out redemption and write a new chapter in the school's rich history? Washington, D.C. is a book from Hoop City, an EPIC Press six set series. Some titles may contain explicit content and/or language.

Hoop City - Youth Services Book Review
. . . an excellent choice for reluctant readers, those reading below grade level and ESL students. Strong, likeable characters, realistic situations, very well done. Recommend to high school students interested in sports, especially boys and those ready to graduate.
