"This book is a solid choice for reluctant readers who also happen to love football."--School Library Journal

Just when it seems that his football dreams are history, Wyatt's older brother, Aaron, makes an unexpected offer: If Wyatt ditches golf camp, he can play with Aaron in the League of Pain: the roughest and most secretive rogue football league in town.
Now Wyatt has a choice. He can play by the rules like he always does, or he can follow his heart--even if it means lying to the people he cares about the most.
But if Wyatt wants to play in the league, he must learn to accept the penalties.
