Ryan's Review Oct 18, 2006
Football Nightmare is about a kid who drops a pass and he doesn't want to play anymore because of that incomplete pass. So everyone always nags him and begs him to play, and he almost loses a couple of friends. He always runs into his coach and his coach always asks him to play. No matter what anyone says, he still does not want to play. In my opinion, it is not good, and I don't recommend this to anybody. There was not enough football in it so if you are looking for a football book, this is not cool, sporty, fun, or good it's BAD--trust me you will not like it. Well, I read it because I thought it was mainly about football, but it wasn't.

MATT CHRISTOPHER: FOOTBALL NIGHTMARE was an interesting book. It shows Keith Stedman life and his life nightmare. Keith Stedman is a hero on the team, and his little sister really looks up to him, his family always encouraged and proud of him. Even though he is an awesome player on the team he drops a winning pass and just that little thing wants him to quit. That is when the story falls apart. His little sister and family very disappointed but still knows it is his decision. He gets help from everyone and everything ends up getting fixed...you will have to read the book to know what all happens.

ALL EYES ARE ON ME Dec 11, 2004
"All eyes were on me. I fell to the ground with the football right beside me. I hated myself. This is a quote from Football Nightmare.
I liked this book. What I liked about the book is that Keith doesn't gives up. I can relate him, because I dropped a pass one time. I like Matt Christopher; he is a good writer. This is one of his best books. I also like Undercover Tailback and The Shortstop From Tokyo.
