In the deep zone, even the very best player can find it impossible to beat a foe who’s hungry and waiting. . . .

Troy White can predict a play before it happens. Star quarterback on his state football team, Troy’s a natural for the 7-on-7 tournament that’s being held at the Super Bowl in Miami. With any luck, his “football genius” will also be working for the Atlanta Falcons on that big day.

Ty Lewis is a wide receiver with exceptional speed. His brother, an NFL star, says getting on a 7-on-7 team will prove Ty’s a winner.

From the moment the two football champs cross paths, Troy and Ty begin to size each other up. Troy is suspicious of Ty’s interest in his friend Tate, while Ty worries his speed will never be a match for Troy’s game smarts. But when the two rivals find themselves somehow tangled in the same dangerous web of deceit, they discover that they have more in common than their skill at football.

Uniting Troy, first seen in the New York Times bestselling Football Genius, and Ty, who was chased by the Mafia in Football Hero, Tim Green’s Deep Zone delivers it all—vivid settings, dynamic characters, and high-stakes action on and off the field.

        Deep Zone is a book about a kid named Ty who is the protagonist of the the book. Ty's brother is a major football star for the New York Jets. Ty is following in his brother’s footsteps and is a star WR for his school team. So everything goes fine for Ty until his brother Thane hurts his knee. Suddenly everything starts to go wrong. Ty finds out that his uncle is coming back into town for a news report. Ty's uncle is in trouble with the mafia because of a stunt he pulled that got two members arrested. But now there is two more members that are the antagonists wanting to hurt Ty's uncle. But the only way they'll find his uncle is by going to Ty. So since Ty's brother is in the hospital that means Ty is home all alone. But when Ty hears a noise one night and calls his brother suddenly there's an FBI agent at his house. Then Ty thinks about another thing he has to worry about. A six in six football tournament! So while Ty is worrying about the mafia he has to try out for a team that will be playing at halftime on Super Bowl Sunday! I liked this book because it is about a kid that plays football and it is written well.
