    About "Thomas J. Dygard"

      In His Own Words I can t remember when I first started writing fiction it was shortly after I began reading fiction, I m sure I ve been a voracious reader for as long as I can remember As a teenager, I read a lot of the same kinds of books I m writing the John R Tunis sports stories, for example I also read a lot of history when I was young and I still do now It s always fascinated me When I was a high school senior, I was offered two jobs, both of the apprentice sort One was in a commercial artist s studio, on a recommendation from my art teacher The other was in the sports department of the local newspaper, following work on the school paper I took the sportswriting job For four years I worked for the Arkansas Gazette while attending the University of Arkansas, first at Little Rock and then at Fayetteville, covering football, baseball, basketball, boxing, golf, tennis everything that made up the sports page After graduation, I joined the Associated Press as a newsman at Little Rock and later worked in AP bureaus in Detroit, Birmingham, and New Orleans Eventually, I was Chief of Bureau in Little Rock, Indianapolis, Chicago, and Tokyo, Japan I retired from the Associated Press in 1993 and now live in Evansville, Indiana For me, writing fiction is fun, relaxing, and satisfying an enjoyable change of pace, a recharging of the batteries My first young adult novel, Running Scared, got started one night in a motel room in Champaign, Illinois, when I had nothing else to do Before long, the story had me in its grip The creation of the thing was a fascinating experience I liked the characters I liked leading them through their problems to their triumphs I kept going until one day it was finished I did not set out to write for young people Looking back, I think it was something of a blessing that 1 did not As I wrote Running Scared, I imagined the reader as an adult, but after it was finished, it seemed appropriate for young readers The result, I think, was that the story did not talk down to teenagers In every book I ve written since, I ve tried to keep the same approach.

    1. After reading the book Backfield Package I would strongly recommend this book. This book contains the excitement of a football season for a senior and his high school friends. It also contains the real life choices of how to further educate yourself in the world whether it is with your friends or by going solo and forging your own path into the future. My overall opinion of the book was it was great and is a must read for any athlete in a high school or even middle school sport even though it is [...]


    2. Joe Mitchell is Hillcrest High star quarterback. When he and his three football friends first agree to attend the same college next year and keep the backfield intact. The only school offering all four of them football scholarships is small and little-known Ryder State College. Then Letters from top football schools start coming in. Now Joe begins to wonder if his decision to go to Ryder State just to stick with his friends was too hasty. This book was very interesting and a easy read. If you li [...]


    3. This book is about four boys who play football in southern Illinois at Hillcrest High and is known as the backfield package. Joe is the star quaterback and can throw the ball perfectly to any receiver, Tracy is a wide receiver who can catch any ball thrown at him but is always a step slow, Coley is the running back who can run and dodge his way out of any situation on the field but is small, and Lew can just power his way through the line and can always gain some yards. The boys are looking to w [...]


    4. I like the story a lot; it has different aspects that complement how the author wrote the story. I also didn't like the story because I couldn't find any figurative language which made it a little boring. The story was about sports so I would recommend this to someone who like high school football or people who like friendship type books. Joe was the main character and his 3 other friends Tracy, Coley, and Lew all plan to go to college together. Soon after his friends visit this great school and [...]


    5. The main character Joe Mitchell is very nervous when Barbara told him about Randolph University a Division 1 school Joe is very interested in asked her serious questions about him. “Seriously, they asked about me?” and “What did they say?” 28. Joe is nervous because he really wants to go to Randolph to play and for them to ask about him means that they are seriously interested. Joe is scared to tell his friends that he is seriously being scouted by Randolph University. “I can’t tell [...]


    6. This book is about four high school football players known as the "Backfield Package" said that they were all going to go to the same college, however, the quarterback of the group was "The Show" and was offered to a big school but he wouldn't be going with "the package." Throughout the story, the quarterback tries to decide what he should do.The problem I have with the book is there isn't enough action. There should be more action like other books by the author. Another reason is that this book [...]


    7. This was a good book.I liked how it was about football. The group of friends tried to put college in the future to focus on the games they were playing in high school as seniors.Tracy , Coley , Lew ,and Joe had a plan where all of them were going to go to Ryder State for college. But what came ahead was bad for them Joe the,quarterback,was better than all of them and was interested in Randolph University a much better school than Ryder State. Read the book and see which one he picks.


    8. it is pretty good so far, but then again I am only on page 6. It is about a talented quarterback who still has a lot ahead of him, but he is already planning on going to college with the same backfield that he has been with because they have been so destructive on the field. They have also won a championship. . .


    9. This was a really good book that I read and it was about this kid that didn't know what college to go to because he wanted to go to a college with his friends but his friends didn't get accepted to the college he wanted to go to.
