Reggie gets down and dirty.

Linebacker Reggie Scott is forced to deal with the repercussions of an incident that shakes his belief in the game he loves. When he is persecuted by angry fans for being a "dirty" player, Reggie is forced to confront his own guilt and decide whether he can continue to play his senior season and beyond.

Jeff Rud was a print journalist in western Canada for twenty-eight years, twenty of them as a sports writer. He is currently executive director of communications and strategy in British Columbia's Office of the Representative for Children and Youth. He lives in Victoria, British Columbia, with his wife, Lana, and likes to coach high-school basketball in his spare time.

"This fast-paced, short novel is perfect...It offers the excitement of the game and at the same time includes a story with substance and morals...Recommended." - Resource Links

"A deeply engaging story...This book will pleasantly surprise readers used to the same old predictable sports stories for boys... For a very good portrayal of emotional turmoil, this is one football story that is worthy of reading, regardless of how much the reader loves or loathes sport. Highly Recommended." - CM Magazine

"This is one of the best Orca books I've read. This book will be a great read for reluctant readers." - Southwestern Ohio Young Adult Materials Review Group
