In Red Zone Rivals by Eric Howling, Quinn Brown is a quarterback on his high school football team. He knows what to do on the field, but he has to learn some life lessons too. This is a very short book, just over 100 pages but still packs a wallop. I enjoyed seeing Quinn grow as a man off the field and I am glad the author did not go to a predictable outcome. This is a good read for sure! (Gerard's review, 5 stars)

Red Zone Rivals by Eric Howling is a quick inspirational teen read about Quinn Brown, a high school quarterback who discovers the new “nerd” in the school isn’t so nerdy after all and learns to think of others. Quinn’s new friend, Walker, shocks everyone when he makes the football team even though he can barely walk! Walker shows Quinn how to focus, tutors him in math, and helps him appreciate his dad. Quinn sticks up for Walker and gets the team to accept him. There is a lot of actual football too which is a plus!
I really enjoyed this book because Quinn improves as a player and as a human being. Walker is amazing and a very inspirational character. I really liked the coaching, football games and the good ending. The book moved along quickly and was interesting if you like football. I can’t think of anything I didn’t like about it.
