Head HunterBook - 2017
As captain of the Westside Warriors, Colt plays clean and hard. But lately his coach - who is also his father - has been losing his temper and ordering the team to win at any cost, even if it means playing dirty. Colt follows Coach's orders to go headhunting and take out an opponent with a helmet-to-helmet hit, but Coach then claims that Colt acted on his own. When it turns out that Colt's dad has symptoms from concussions he suffered in his NFL career, Colt is made acting coach. Will he let a teammate continue playing after a hit to the head, even when it could cost them the championship game?
