It will be the best of times as Jack and his friend, Jack Algood, try out for the football team. They will find themselves key players on a team that will make state history very soon. It is a time of love as Jack White meets the new girl in town, Barbara James, and falls head over heels. The other Jack is smitten by Anne Adams, who’s father is the prestigious doctor in town. Little do they know where this romance will lead. The reader will be entertained as Jack and his friends meet at the local soda fountain to chat and hatch out plans for summer break. One project turns a rusty old 1928 Model A Ford into what will become an icon for the Redbank High football team in the years to come.
