Andy McDonald loves football nearly as much as his father does. He even shared the possibility of “going pro”, like father, like son. Until that fateful day in August when Andy’s enthusiasm dies as quickly as his father’s unexpected and sudden death. As Andy tries to hold it all together for his mother, he is also forced to examine his own true expectations. His father had planned ahead for his imminent demise by legally donating his organs. When Andy meets the recipient of his father’s kidney, he is filled with mixed emotions of pride and anger, which help him direct his future decisions regarding the importance of living for the moment. Andy McDonald learns the true meaning of entering the adult world in this harsh saga of reality.

A Player's Path: A Story About Life and Football (Legacy series) by Titan Frey is an example of serious choices in a young man’s life. It is obvious that author Titan Frey is passionate about the perils of today’s youth in this endearing and authentic tale of one boy’s goal to honor his father’s memory in the best way possible. As Andy struggles to achieve his father’s dream of rearing a successful football player, he also realizes that dreams will not necessarily fulfill the ultimate goal of becoming his best self. An authentic teenage narrative complements this “boy” story of which our bookshelves see very few. Filled with witty humor, Titan Frey gives readers a sincere look into the emotional psyche of this impressionable young man.
