Wild Card

Wild Card

For Ages: 8 - 12
From NFL superstars Tiki and Ronde Barber, a story of teamwork and determination—in the classroom as well as on the field.

The eighth-grade season couldn’t be going better for the Barbers’ team, the Hidden Valley Egales. Everything is off to a strong start—until one of the key players on the team is benched for academic probation. Without good grades there is no playing time. No exceptions. Ever. Will the team’s hopes for the season be demolished, or can they find a way to help their teammate get his grades up? Fortunately for the Barber brothers, it turns out that the team that plays together can study together too.
