"Hut! Hut! Go long, Tiki!"

Tiki and Ronde's twelfth summer is winding down -- the nights are getting

shorter and the evenings cooler. That means two things: The first day of

junior high is just a few days away, and it's almost the start of football

season at last. With two championships and an 8-2 season last year, Tiki

and Ronde are ready to graduate from the Peewee League and hit the field as

starting players for the Hidden Valley Eagles.

But junior high is a lot bigger than elementary school. The competition for

starting spots is stiff, and seniority rules. If Tiki and Ronde make it

past tryouts and cuts, will they get the chance to play, or will they have

to spend the season watching from the bench with the other seventh graders?

Inspired by the childhood of NFL superstars Tiki and Ronde Barber,

Kickoff! is a story of teamwork, perseverance, and what it takes to

be a champion.
