This is book number 11 in the Fred Bowen Sports Story Series series.


Sam loves football. There's nothing better than the rush he gets when his team, the Cowboys, are working together—moving closer and closer to the end zone.

But in a key game, the Cowboys beat their archrivals to remain undefeated, thanks to a major play by Sam.

However, the celebration ends when he and his teammates make an unwelcome discovery: The winning play was illegal. Is the Cowboys' perfect season in jeopardy? Did they really deserve to win?

Author Fred Bowen delivers exciting play-by-play action along with an important story of winning and losing, truth and consequences, and good sportsmanship. The afterword reveals the inspiration for this story: the controversial 1940 Cornell-Dartmouth game.
