About this title


With the prospect of a career-changing opportunity looming, along with a series of other challenges that pop up during the week, Coach Ben Reynolds zeroes in on preparing his Hillmen squad for trying to pull off one of the greatest upsets in his coaching career and a berth in the State Championship game. However . . .; Bubba Brown is back-vengeful, desperate, and determined to ruin the man he feels responsible for his demise, Hillsdale High School football coach Ben Reynolds.; Jeremy Johnson, once a part-time starter for the Hillmen early in the season, has other goals on his mind, primarily head varsity manager Jennifer Kirby. Yet, his recklessness and audacity create another threat to the squad as they prepare for their ultimate challenge.; Running back and linebacker Matt Gerard, a steadying influence both on and off the field for Hillsdale, must choose what's best for him or what's best for his team, as they face a semi-final opponent like no other. The Hillsdale Hillmen's team slogan for the season, Carpe Diem (Seize the Day), provides the backdrop for this third and final installment of the Hillsdale trilogy. When opportunity beckons, people become judged as to how they respond at that moment. It's no different in Hillsdale, with the chance to be the first team in school history to play for the State Title staring at them right in their faces. How will they respond?

About the Author:

Mick Peterson resides in Pontiac, Illinois, with his wife Carole and his daughter Emily. They are also parents of Katie (Dr. Bryan) Huff, Julie, and Drew (Jenna), and grandparents of Ethan and Kanen Huff. After thirty-four years in education, he retired from teaching following the 2008 school year. His career began at Flora (IL) High School (1974-84) where he taught English and was an assistant coach in both football and basketball. In 1984, he moved to Walnut (IL) High School, where he taught both English and PE and served as head football coach, assistant boys basketball coach, and head girls track coach. His football teams in Walnut won four conference championships and advanced to the quarterfinal round in the Class 1A State Tournament, compiling a five-year overall record of 50-9. The Petersons finally settled in Pontiac in 1989, where he taught and coached for nineteen years. He served as the head football coach for eighteen years and was also a part of both the boys basketball and girls track programs. Mick's football squads won ten conference championships and qualified for the State playoffs on fifteen occasions. Twice Pontiac reached the semi-final round, and, in 1993, the Indians captured the Class 3A championship. After the 2006 season, he retired from coaching with an overall record at Pontiac of 136-47. He has spent his "retirement" working at Champion Fitness Physical Therapy as Growth/Development Director, along with a stint as the host of a Saturday morning radio show in Pontiac. Carpe Diem completes the Hillsdale Trilogy, following the release of Homecoming in 2008, and Once a Coach in 2007.
