Contributor Bio(s): Green, Tim: -

Tim Green, for many years a star defensive end with the Atlanta Falcons, is a man of many talents. He's the author of such gripping books for adults as the New York Times bestselling The Dark Side of the Game and American Outrage. Tim graduated covaledictorian from Syracuse University and was a first-round draft pick. He later earned his law degree with honors, and he has also worked as an NFL commentator for FOX Sports and NPR.

His first book for young readers, Football Genius, inspired in part by his players and his own kids, became a New York Times bestseller and was followed by Football Hero, Football Champ, The Big Time, and Deep Zone. He drew on his experiences playing and coaching Little League for Rivals and Pinch Hit and two more New York Times bestsellers: Baseball Great and Best of the Best.

Bestselling author Jon Scieszka called Tim Green's Unstoppable, a book about a boy's struggle with cancer that debuted at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list, "Absolutely heroic. And something every guy should read."

Tim Green lives with his wife, Illyssa, and their five children in upstate New York.



Reviewed by Horn Book Guide Reviews (Horn Book Guide Reviews 2014 Fall)
Troy finds his gig as play-predicting "genius" for the New York Jets in jeopardy as his attention turns to quarterbacking his own perfect season. This sixth novel blends familiar characters--cousins Ty and Thane, coach Seth, and more--with new sparks like cocky but likable wide receiver Chuku. Football action, quick dialogue, and short chapters help propel the rather drawn-out novel.
