Description

If you're a football fanatic, then you've probably heard the term "three yards and a cloud of dust." Well, in Drabenville, Florida, they do things a little differently. Twenty-two-year-old Jake Yankelovich is learning that the hard way. On the precipice of a soul-crushing slog into the corporate world, he decides to become a sportswriter-and he has to start somewhere... As he covers an intense season of high school football, Jake is blown away by the passion everyone has for the sport. But as the new guy in an alien, insular town, he's also running up against the old-boy network. That's making it difficult for him to get answers about murky financial dealings and a dubious school redistricting decision that just so happens to have brought some of the best players in the state to perennial powerhouse Dolphin High, which had fallen from dominance. "Three Yards and a Plate of Mullet" is a thoroughly entertaining flashback to 1980s Florida. Uniting the worlds of high-stakes high school football with newsroom drama and eccentric characters, it follows our intrepid young reporter as he works to make it in the business he loves while finding his way around a peculiar culture.show more
