High school all-American Neely Crenshaw was probably the best quarterback ever to play for the legendary Messina Spartans. Fifteen years have gone by since those glory days, and Neely has come home to Messina to bury Coach Eddie Rake, the man who molded the Spartans into an unbeatable football dynasty. Now, as Coach Rake's "boys" sit in the bleachers waiting for the dimming field lights to signal his passing, they replay the old games, relive the old glories, and try to decide once and for all whether they love Eddie Rake--or hate him. For Neely Crenshaw, a man who must finally forgive his coach--and himself--before he can get on with his life, the stakes are especially high.… (més)

This is definitely not my favorite of his books. It addresses, to me, some problems that are in our society today, the importance of the athletes in HS to the detriment of the rest of the students. I am a football fan but not of the arrogance that goes with the "heroes" that play. The story is of 30 years of kids that played for this one coach in a small town. The coach is dying and they all have to come to grips with lessons that he taught. Many of them were good lessons but taught in a way that was too harsh for many.

This is a story of a man, a high-school football coach and a town. A town where varsity football is the heartbeat. Neely Crenshaw finds himself drawn back to the town of Messina, fifteen years after his glory days as one of the best quarterbacks to play high school varsity football in the town, to pay homage to his old coach who only has days to live. This story takes you on an emotional journey of this man Neely, trying to free himself from a past of unrealized dreams that he can't seem to escape. It takes you on an emotional journey of a town torn apart by a past tragedy they can't seem to escape. And an emotional journey of a team with a secret whose weight they can't seem to escape. Can the death of this great coach and man free them?

Its an emotional ride that I could not get enough of. The story is just too short, I want more!! ( )

Mr. Grisham's stories -- even the short, anomalous ones like his last small book, ''Skipping Christmas'' -- generally have more storytelling force than ''Bleachers'' does. His purpose this time seems more reflective than showy, and his love for this sports-related subject matter is palpably real.

The road to Rake Field ran beside the school, past the old band hall and the tennis courts, through a tunnel of two perfect rows of red and yellow maples planted and paid for by the boosters, then over a small hill to a lower area covered with enough asphalt for a thousand cars.
