It's always been Stevie McCrae's goal to play running back at University of Texas-Austin. But because of his size, Stevie never gets recognition from recruiters. Despite gaudy numbers and state rushing records, his only scholarship offers have come from out-of-state Division Two schools. But if Stevie can lead his team to a state title, his dream of attending the University of Texas might be within reach. Austin is from Texas Fridays, an EPIC Press series.

Texas Fridays – School Library Journal
This new series explores the fanfare of high school football, following the stories of different players from cities all over Texas. The diverse backgrounds and authentic struggles of these players, including relationship drama and family pressures, make the characters relatable and the plots engaging. These books are written at a sixth grade reading level, though they are longer than most hi-lo books, and some mature content makes them appropriate for high school readers.
