I rap my knuckles against Derek Andrews’ office door before
poking my head inside the cramped space. “Hey, Coach. You got a
A bright smile flashes across his sun-weathered face as he pauses the
game film he’s watching and waves me in. “You don’t need to knock,
Mason. You work here now. Walk in any damn time you want.”
The corners of my lips tug upward as I settle on the worn chair parked
across from his desk. “That’s gonna take a little time to get used to.” As I
glance around the office, my gaze slides over all the team photos that line the
wall since he’s been head coach for the Claremont Cougars.
That’s fifteen years.
This is the man who recruited me when I was a junior in high school. I
spent my freshman and sophomore years in college as his starting
quarterback before my parents died in a boating accident. That day changed
the course of my entire life. Instead of starting my junior year, I was forced to
drop out and work full time as a mechanic to pay the bills and make sure my
younger brother was taken care of.

you think about Levi? The kid has a solid arm. With the proper coaching,
there’s no doubt he’ll continue to improve.” He points a finger at me. “That’s
where you come in.”
“He’s talented,” I agree. “From what I’ve seen, he needs to exert more
control so he can send the ball to Ericson with consistency.”
The older man nods. “Yup, that’s exactly what I was thinking. You two
will work well together.”
When we lapse into silence, I shift and clear my throat. “I wanted to
thank you again for giving me a chance to prove myself. I appreciate it.”
His lips quirk as warmth fills his deep blue eyes. “I need a coach with
your experience, and it’s a great opportunity to finish up your degree.
Especially with the break in tuition. As far as I’m concerned, it’s a win-win
My hand rises to the back of my neck to massage the area as I shake my
head. “I’ve registered for a couple of classes,” I admit reluctantly. “It’s going
to be weird going back after all this time. I feel so damn old around these
