This is a story about a bad football team. They hadn't won a game all year! Their coach got the measles and the Thanksgiving game was coming up. There were going to play the Werewolves and they needed a new coach. Coach Swamp, the meanest coach ever, showed up at practice. Coach Swamp really gave the team the business. Did the team win? You will have to read the book to find out!

I loved this book because the coach was funny. I like Coach Swamp because she was a good coach and helped the team win. This story reminded me of my friend that plays football.

I highly recommend this book because it is funny and it has good pictures. You should read this book if you like to laugh. People who like to play football should also read this story because this story is about a football team.
