With his eyes on an unprecedented third Lombardi Trophy, Sabino sees only one option: acquiring guaranteed first pick Christian McKinley, the quarterback phenom from Michigan. But at what price?

The San Diego Chargers, who presently hold that pick, are not interested in McKinley—so they'll offer it to the highest bidder. Now Sabino must jump into a cut-throat competition in which old friends become mortal enemies, and no one—not even your allies—can be trusted. The “McKinley Sweepstakes” could very well be the make-or-break moment of Sabino's career, and the fork in the road that leads him and his team either into the history books—or to the tepid hell of mediocrity….
