Cap Wadell loves football, but it seems unlikely that he'll ever get to play on a real team-his hometown is so small that there aren't enough boys in his school to fill a regulation squad. Then his grandfather tells him how he solved that same problem years before: He and his schoolmates started a six-man football league. If Cap wants to do the same thing, Grandpa will be happy to help. He'll even coach the team if the league gets off the ground. It does, and soon Cap and his friends are learning the rules of six-man football. Cap is in competition for the starting quarterback spot with Jimmy Cash, but that's not a problem. What is a problem is that Grandpa and Jimmy's grandfather have reignited an old football feud. When their rivalry starts to affect the team, Cap wonders if the team will survive.

From Our Editors

Cap Wadell loves football but there aren’t enough people to make a team in his small town. So his grandfather suggests making a team of six and playing against other small town teams. Cap recruits players, finds uniforms, finds a playing field — but he still needs a coach. He thinks his grandfather’s perfect for the job but when another grandfather thinks he’s playing favourites by making Cap the team quarterback, old rivalries resurface in Matt Christopher’s Long Arm Quarterback.
