You are Scotty Reardon, the backup to Bobby “The Beast” Brownstein, Murrow High’s star senior quarterback. Your job is to be ready to play at all times, just in case you’re needed. It’s the day of the first game of the season and you are ready . . . mostly. But there’s a secret that you’ve never felt comfortable sharing with your coaches or teammates. It’s made being a quarterback twice as hard, and could bring a fast end to your playing career. Can you make sure your secret doesn’t stop you from succeeding when it’s your turn to take the field?
