Editorial Review

A noteworthy review of Professional Football Teams from School Library Journal on November 1, 2022

Cover: Chicago Bears

Covering each of the teams in the National Football League, this series briefly runs through each teams’ history, including their notable players and impactful coaches. In addition to short biographies of ‘legacy’ players, the books include writeups of current stars who readers may find more familiar. This attention to past and present highlights the decades of blood, sweat, and tears athletes, coaches, and fans have poured into football. ‘The GOAT’ segments in each book take a moment to celebrate players whose names are synonymous with their team, like the Baltimore Ravens’ Ray Lewis, the Indianapolis Colts’ Peyton Manning, and the Green Bay Packers’ Brett Favre. Aside from a short mention of the racist history of the Washington Commodores’ previous team name, the series shies away from the many controversies in the modern-day NFL. The clear, eager writing focuses on the love of the game. VERDICT A fine additional purchase if your NFL books need updating.
