After budget cuts force the Southside Saints football team to disband, Jamal and his friends have to settle for playing pickup on the hardscrabble field behind their high school. Then the president of a sporting-goods company offers to donate $20,000 worth of equipment to the team. There's only one catch: he wants to be the coach. Thrilled to have a real team together, the players turn a blind eye to Coach Fort's racism, bullying and discrimination. Until he takes it too far. Now it's up to Jamal and his teammates to take back their team and show what they're made of.

Gang Tackle by Eric Howling was a very interesting novel. Even though I didn't really enjoy it, I think it would be perfect for sports lovers. They would be delighted with the main topic football, the aspect of teamwork and struggles of teenagers. Of course if you don't find sports appealing, maybe this is not the book for you. Also, if you have read many books, you may find the plot line predictable. Overall, I believe the novel is directed for a certain audience. Decent read, but would never read again.
