"Football Hero by Tim Green is sports fiction was published in 2008. I think this book was OK because some parts were interesting while others are boring. One main character is Ty who is a 12 year old boy who is a new kid at school. Another character is uncle Gus who does not want Ty to play football. The main conflict of this book is that Ty is a new kid and he decides to do football and people are making fun of him. The setting is the school and at his uncle's and aunt's house. I learned to never give up or care what people think and do your best no matter what. The story was confusing. I don't recommend this book because there is not a lot of action." said.

"This was a great book! I read it for my classroom library, but I can't wait to tell my students about it! It was full of a lot of great life lessons as well as just a good story. Ty is torn between doing what is right and wrong. He is being pressured to get inside information for his uncle from his NFL playing brother. His uncle is using the information for an underground gambling deal he is in. Once Ty realizes what is going on, he finds that he has a lot of other problems then just cleaning the toilets at his after school job. All this is happening while he is learning to play football himself! " said.

"My sister went to high school with this author1 I was a freshman when he was a senior so I never met him, but he was the BMOC (big man on campus!).

I did not think I would like this book, but about halfway through, I started liking it. I picked it up because it was in our school's book fair and the boys seemed interested in it. So, naturally, I needed to keep up with the kids. I thought there was some unnecessarily gross stuff in the beginning, but when the story started picking up, the grossness stopped. I think boys would really enjoy this book if they like football or not. I would keep it in 5th grade, though.... the mob is not very nice and neither is the uncle.

"Everyone says that they will do anything to protect their family, but when you could get hurt and or killed trying to save them would you still do it?




In the book “Football Hero” by Tim Green the main character Ty Lewis lives with his aunt Virginia and uncle Gus ever since his parents died in a car wreck.

Thane is expected to be one the top picks of the draft if, not the first and Thane is supposed to be drafted by the jets. That information gains Lucy’s interest because when Thane is drafted he will have “the real” injury reports before the general public do, that is valuable information to the mobster because him and some dangerous people he knows in the mafia can place enormous bets on the game and make loads of money.

Suddenly things take a turn for the worse.

So the question is what will happen to Thane and Ty now? Will Lucy try to injure Thane before the game or will Lucy come after Ty? Will Ty put himself in danger and try to protect Thane? You will have to read and find out.




This book constantly left me in suspense throughout the whole story. If you think you have to like sports to enjoy this book you are definitely wrong. Football Hero is a nail biting novel that will leave you on the edge of your seat all the way down to the very last page.
This is a great book for anyone because Tim Green does a great job of making it so that everyone can relate to some part of the story and if you like a heart pounding adventure full of twists and turns then this is the book for you!
