Orca Soundings: “Juice”

Juice by Eric Walters   juice

When Coach Reeves retires and Coach Barnes comes to coach football at Michael ‘Moose’s’ high school, optimism is high. Barnes has coached at Division One Central High and tells his new team that they can become Division One as well—with all the perks, including chances at college scholarships.

Coach Barnes has brought lots of sponsorship with him. There’s new equipment including a whirlpool, big screen TVs in the weight room, a massage therapist and new uniforms.

But a new attitude is expected too—one of winning at any cost. And Moose is the new team captain who is challenged to do whatever it takes in order to have a chance at an NFL future.

Another good one from Orca Soundings. Looking forward to seeing the READ 180 classes tomorrow at Chaffey!
