Speed Demon (Fred Bowen Sports Story)

Eager to find his place at his elite new school, ninth-grader Tim Beeman is torn between running track and trying out for football. Where will he feel most comfortable and be able to put his fast running skills to best use?

When Tim sets a new school record for the fifty-yard dash during the first week of classes, he reveals his special talent: speed. Before long, the track and the football teams are both urging him to join their sport. Tim is torn. He feels he has a lot to offer the football team and is eager to join this popular group, but he can't shake a lingering fear of being injured. He would definitely be an asset to the track team, but he is drawn to the more prestigious football team.

How can Tim put his talent to the best use and at the same time satisfy his own needs?

The afterword offers relatable athlete struggles about making choices and developing friendships as well as an important conversation about player safety.
