In this book there are a couple of main charactars so I will list them all and they are Joe the halfback, Paul the Quarterback, Andey the runningback, chuck the fullback, richard one of Joes old friends, Marty another one of Joes crazy friends, Earl Steele the coach of the football team,well that's about all of them.
This book is about a boy named Joe that was a trouble maker at his old school because he hung around with the wrong people.These people where Marty and Richard who smoked and drunk and did bad things like that. Well he moved away to another school about three hours away,and one day after school he was smoking in front of the school tennis court and the quarterback named Paul told joe to put it out. Joe never thought about going out for the football team at his old school but he did for this one. He was at the first day of practice and Joe did not know but he had the talent to run fast and catch the ball better than anyone on the field. He was so good that Earl Steel replaced Jason the starting halfback with Joe so now Joe was starting. Joe had became famous for his football talent and made best friends with Andey the runningback. In his new school he made the best grades he had ever had and was the biggest star in town cause he was in the news paper and every one knew his name cause he was the football teams best weapon. His school was undefeated when they had to face Joe's old school. Joe knew that Marty and Richard where there and they saw him before he saw them and with them being drunk they started yelling his name and embarissing him. But they still won the game. Joe got back with his old friends and started drinking again with them for a while then went home. The next day they found out there school had been broken in to. they found out who it was it was a trouble maker. But every one was worride about the big game the other team was un defeated to like them. They had a hard time but they still won the game.
This is a good book for a sports fan and I recommend this book for any one who plays sports.
The characters in this book were Joe Atkins he was the main character, and his old friends Marty and Richard. There were the quarterback, Paul King; second string flanker, Jason McNeal; Andy Walker, the tailback; and Earl Steel, the coach. The story is about a kid who moved from Worthington High to Graham High and eventually decided to play football. When Joe was in Worthington he was a trouble who smoked, He went to football games and called the player's jocks and heroes. After moving to Graham he became a football star. Joe has second thoughts in the middle of the season. Paul King Spreads a rumor that before Joe joined the football team he saw him smoking a cigarette in the bleachers. Paul called Joe a troublemaker and said he wasn't reliable. He gets a lot of stress because he doesn't think hi teammates will like. Joe starts thinking that he can't be depended on. Personally my most preferred chapter was chapter 3 because, Joe had his first scrimmage. He did so good Coach Steele told him to stay out on the field with the starting offense. I liked this book because of the football things like games are described in detail.

The book that I read was halfback tough. I gave this book a 4 out of 5 stars because the book was about my favorite sport and it was a good book about how a kid had to work his was up on the football team from the bottom to the top.
My book is about named Joe Atkins that had to change schools because he was always getting into trouble with his old friends. At the new school he tries to start a new life and to become a better person. As that happened he was trying new things like he went out for the football team. He found out that if you go out for a sport you have to maintain eligible. Once that he started to pay more attention in class and became a better student and wasn?t always getting into trouble. Then he became on of the best football players at the school he played wide receiver. This book was an okay book but the only things that had interested me the most was when it was a football game or something to do with the football game.
