ABOUT THE BOOK
In the world of sports, football is still king. From Pop Warner up through the pros, people just can’t seem to get enough of their gridiron gods. Nowhere is this truer than in Buffalo, N.Y., where fans are desperate for a winner. The Buffalo Blizzard of the North American Football Association (NAFA) have teased and tortured their fan base for well beyond a decade. Long past was the franchise’s heyday back in the mid-to-late-’90s when they lost four consecutive Mega Bowls. However, things are looking up for Buffalo, and this may be their year!
Jack Driftwood, a 17-year NAFA veteran (all with the Blizzard), is back for number 18 and one last shot at Mega Bowl glory. But the Blizzard haven’t been to the playoffs since Driftwood’s rookie year when they lost in a blowout in Mega Bowl 33.
Blizzard General Manager Donald Allen Fegel Jr., through a series of shrewd moves and back room dealings, has brought the franchise back from the dead and into contention.
Team owner Gerald Wainscott III is no spring chicken, and he has recruited his daughter Gerry to take over the franchise after he is gone. Gerry’s arrival throws a wrench into the lives of both Driftwood and Fegel, but for entirely different reasons.
These titans clash both on and off the field and it truly is a no-holds-barred fight to the finish. Yet they all desire one thing above all: A Mega Bowl victory for the city of Buffalo.
Mr. Bentley is available for interviews, appearances, and book signings. To schedule any of these events, please contact Jake Bentley at 616-308-6148 or at email@example.com
