An Unlikely Season: Destined, From Tykes to Titans, A Season Unbound Book Cover

What happens when you bring together a group of disgruntled high school senior football players with a class of upstart juniors, and a group of coaches on their last attempt at greatness? It could be magic. These three stories are told from unique perspectives by the head coach, a returning All-League receiver, and an unlikely quarterback.

The Gladiators of Gladstone High School were set to kick a late field goal that could solidify a brilliant come from behind victory. It was against the undefeated Walnut Mustangs who were the #1 ranked team in CIF Division AA. If successful, the Gladiators would have done what no other Gladiator team had ever done—win a championship.
