Fiery Fullback

Saturday, August 7, 2010
Just two lineman have ever won the Heisman Trophy. The sportswriters have been giving the award since 1935 and in all that time only two lineman have ever won it. All the rest were backs or wide receivers. And you're trying to tell me that lineman are important. Hogwash!

Book: Fiery Fullback by Coach Claire Bee, Broadman & Holman Publishers, 2002
Fiery Fullback (Chip Hilton Sports Series #24) 
Genre: Sports Fiction
Target Audience: Boys 13-20
Subjects: Teamwork, friendships, showing love to others
Summary: It's a sure loss for Chip's team. Hansen is only interested in one position on the team and that's the one position the coach doesn't want him to play. It's Chip's senior year at the university and he wants to see the team do it's best, but if they can't learn to work together, they won't be able to give it their best. Chip knows there must be a reason for Hansen's attitude and determines to show love to Hansen and help in any way he can.
Notes: A book for a true sport's fan, over half the book's content is recounting of football games or football plans. The story that is there though, is good. Chip lives his faith quietly. He turns to God for wisdom and seeks to make choices that will bring glory to God. He doesn't "preach", just shows the love of God and works his hardest for the team. This is the 24th book in the Chip Hilton Sports series, an older series that claims impact on writers and sports fans alike. This book is apparently a never-before-release that came with the updated versions of the books. 
Recommendation Scale: For sports fans 4.5, for non-sports fans: 2

1 Corinthians 12:12 - The body is a unit, though it is made up of many parts; and though all its parts are many, they form one body. So it is with Christ.
