A relatable sports story for teen boys that addresses inner conflict, coping with adversity, defining one’s worth, and transformation. Fifteen-year-old Drew Hennings’ dream of playing quarterback for his local high school team and playing college football in the Ivy League ended when he got a serious concussion. Drew can’t play football anymore, but he loves the game too much to walk away. With a close family friend and football official, Jack, as his mentor, Drew decides to transform himself into the first teenage football referee that Boston’s South Shore has ever seen. Can he transfer his leadership skills to refereeing and make the right call even when it’s unpopular? Will he be good enough to earn a place on the crew of a youth football playoff game?

Dr. Struzziero played football and sang a cappella for Tufts University. He teaches English at Hingham High School; he officiates high school football with the Eastern Massachusetts Association of Interscholastic Football Officials, and he enjoys singing at First Parish Church in Cohasset, MA where he lives with his wife and two daughters.
