The All-Pro: Galactic Football League Volume 3
The All-Pro is a thriller / science fiction novel by American author Scott Sigler that was released in 2011. The third book in the Galactic Football League series, The All-Pro is preceeded by The Rookie and The Starter, and continues with The MVP.
Seven centuries into the future, aliens and humans compete for the greatest prize in the universe: the Galactic Football League Galaxy Bowl trophy.
Quarterback Quentin Barnes enters his third season at the helm of the Ionath Krakens. He's re-shaped the team in his image, and the time for excuses is over -- it's win, or be replaced. Quentin's championship quest carries he and his teammates across the galaxy in a brutal twelve-game season fraught with injury and death.
But he faces more than just on-field challenges. As he enters a free-agent year, several franchises vie for his services. Will he play for a new team, or will he remain with his beloved Krakens.
And then there's the slight distraction that someone, somewhere, is trying to assassinate him - and he doesn't know why.
Follow the Krakens as they fight to take the title and achieve immortality.
