    BEST HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL BOOK OF THE YEAR! OVER 2000 COPIES SOLD IN MO ALONE

    Follow the 2008 St. Louis, MO Roosevelt High School Roughriders football team through one tremulous year of Friday Night Lights- Ghetto style. This book, Riding the Storm Out, is full of unforgettable characters: Coaches who tilt at one bureaucratic windmill after another, a Principal who takes back the school hallways from neighborhood gang members and young Athletes who never stop dreaming of life beyond the grim reality of their home turf. The reader will be inspired one minute, outraged the next; all the while traversing a path on a journey led by visionary adults, followed by courageous athletes; all fighting for daily survival in a school system some call the most deficient in the nation.
