Overview
Freddie must overcome his fear of tackling before the championship game against the Cardinals

Publishers Description
Freddie Chase is a good football player with one major flaw: He's afraid to tackle. He tries hard to cover up his fear, but soon Coach Sears and the other Sandpipers know all about it. The team is fighting to finish the season at the top of the league, but how can they hope to succeed when one of their players lets the opposition run right by him? Coach Sears has no choice but to take Freddie out of the lineup. Now it's up to Freddie to earn his way back onto the starting team. But can he overcome his fear?

The Crackerjack Halfback  Feb 15, 2005
Crackerjack Halfback
By: Matt Christopher


The book I read was Crackerjack Halfback. The author is Matt Christopher. A boy on the football team named Freddie Chase is having a problem. Freddie's problem is that he is afraid to tackle. Freddie knows he has to suck up his fear or he will lose his position. Now they are in a position and need to win and Freddie missed some tackles. Coach Sears knows he has to take him out of the game. Now Freddie has to try hard to gain his spot back. Wonder if he can over come that fear. I would recommend this book to kids that are worried about fears or problems they have and want to over come their problem or fear. Also kids that are truly in love with football.

Crackerjack Halfback
This is a story about a boy named Freddie that can not tackle in football.
The main character is Freddie he wants to play football. So he wants to play for the Sandpipers. He goes to practice and the coach finds out that he has a weakness. He and his mom enter duce themselves to the coach and coaches son so they talk for awhile then the coach said does Freddie want to go see a football film tomorrow night. Freddie said sure I would like to. So Freddie gets home from school and gets ready to go. The coach is here said Freddie so he gets in the car and on the way to the movie they were on the road and on the road there was a semi truck. And the coach was taking a short cut and the truck was going fast and almost ran into the coach and ran him off the road and the coach ran into a fence and the car went into the river. So they were in the river then they all wake up and water was coming into the car and someone saw them in the river then they said im going to call for help.
Then they are at there last game so it all started that Freddie was playing linebacker he wasn't playing so good so the coach said Freddie come sit out so he did and the coach said I know you can hit so we are going to put you in the next play and the coach said it's next play so go so it was next play and they were running it so he flew right past Freddie and Freddie had to get him he ran and he got the tackle and that was the end of the 4th ot and the Sandpipers.
