A New York Times sportswriter and Kansas City native takes a year from his New York life, and that of his wife and young son, to chronicle the fortunes of a remarkably successful small town Kansas football team seeking their fifth straight state championship.

Having those western Kansas roots myself I could recognize the inherent decency and savvier-than-you-might-think people from the center of this country. It's not just a football story; it is just a football story. Quick to read. You're a curmudgeon if you don't come away feeling good about these coaches, these young men, their families and community.
