In a sport like football, players are expected to be able to withstand a lot of physical contact and keep on going. Manny’s a guy who is built more for speed than contact. Will he be able to make a place for himself on this team? He is willing to work hard and learn the plays but will that be enough to convince his coach to play him?  (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2006-2007)
