Overtime Website Look Inside How would you like to help name an NFL team? For the Houston Texans, fans helped choose their name by voting online- other options were the Apollos, Bobcats, Wildcats, and Stallions. The Houston Texans by Mark Stewart offers young fans a look into one of the newest NFL teams while including fun facts, team spotlights such as DeMeco Ryans and Andre Johnson, and pictures of Texans memorabilia. Have a young fan who likes to argue sports? Dont miss the Great Debates section where readers get insight into some of the greatest debates surrounding the Texans and professional football! Team spirit is that deep passion shared by the players and fans when they wear the same colors, watch the same scoreboard, and cheer the same triumphs. This popular series has been completely revised and updated for the Fall 2012 release. Book updates include new team information, records, photos, and timelines as well as new features like GREAT DEBATES and GLORY DAYS. Once you finish the book, you can go to the OVERTIME WEBSITE where each football team has its very own webpage to accompany the reading material. This site will be updated throughout the season and postseason with kid-friendly news about their favorite football teams - the perfect source for up-to-date statistics and player information for young sports fans.

The presentation of the photos with the text is attractive and the layout is easy to follow. The fun facts, timeline, and pinpoints are a plus. Recommended.

Richardson Independent School District's Library Media Services Book Review Program, June 2009



Brief overview of the team with a short history, quotes from the greatest players, and team achievements. There are lots of great shots, logos, and “trading card” type pictures. Interesting Fun Facts, a glossary and index complete the package. Even though it is a smaller book on about a 5th grade reading level, it will be of interest to middle schoolers as well.
