Item description for Football Nightmare (Matt Christopher Sports Fiction) by Matt Christopher...

Having dropped a pass that made his football team miss having an undefeated season, thirteen-year-old Keith fears that he will continue to make bad mistakes and wonders if he should continue playing football.

Publishers Description
A miserable memory dogs Keith's every move Keith Stedman dropped the pass. The game-winning, undefeated-record-making pass that would have made him a hero instead of a loser. Now, a year later, that missed pass still haunts him, so much so that he's considering quitting football for good. His friends and family finally convince him to stick with it, but Keith's troubles are far from over. Another player is out for his position and seems determined to do everything he can to keep the dropped pass memory alive in the minds of the whole team - including Keith. Can Keith overcome his own obsession with the past and succeed in the present?

Reviews - What do customers think about Football Nightmare (Matt Christopher Sports Fiction)?

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.
this book  Oct 11, 2006
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 will have to read the book to know what all happens.

Being discouraged by Larry Vincent a kid who wants the starting slot instead of him and encouraged by his family but especially his little sister Traci.

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.

Exciting book  Nov 16, 2004
This exciting book starts when Keith Steadman drops the winning pass. He decides not to play football anymore because he feels like a loser. He has nightmares every night about the dropped pass. It is a good story because it shows how he overcomes his mistake with his family's help. I think you should read this book to find out more!
