Everything is ending for Red O'Sullivan.  His brother is dead, his town is dying, and his class will be the last to graduate from their school before it's closed down.  The only thing that keeps him and the remaining residents going is the high school football team, the Muckers.  They haven't won state since Red's brother was quarterback and with more people leaving and fewer resources available, it would take a miracle to repeat that title.  But the entire town is counting on them, and the Muckers won't go down without a fight.  (Isinglass Teen Award Committee, 2015)
