KIRKUS REVIEW

A rather ordinary sports story is sparked by a social question and a personal rivalry between a coach and a sports writer. Pete Pulaski, the hero, is a boy from a large midwestern public high school where an easy going democracy has been the rule and little fuss was made about class or money. Then for a combination of good football playing and grades, Pete wins a scholarship from Eastern, an Ivy League college. Going there with premonitions about snobbery, Pete finds some of his preconceived ideas wrong and as he has the opportunity to help two poor rich boys and to work for his coach, Pete acquires a better understanding of people on a personal level.
