The Gods of Asphalt
BOOK ONE – SAWYER
With the clock ticking on his senior year and chance for a college scholarship, Sawyer abandons his father and brother for a permanent life in Nebraska with his grandfather, Gus. But life in his father’s hometown isn’t what Sawyer expected, and soon stories of his father’s former glory days as a high school football star begin to surface; tales of gridiron greatness and career aspirations that end tragically with his marriage to a flighty, on-again, off-again girlfriend.
Determined to avoid the same fate that robbed his father of his own professional sports career, Sawyer makes a vow to never fall in love. Enlisting the help of his awkward teammate Jeb, the two devise a game plan to keep the girls away. But there is an obstacle in the road that Sawyer never sees coming: a blue-eyed obstacle who reveals a fate worse than failure– success.
