Twin brothers Tiki and Ronde Barber share a story of perseverance and teamwork from when they were growing up and playing for the Cave Springs Vikings before they became NFL superstars.

Ronde is #21 and Tiki is #22, always side by side. Tiki has had seven long touch-down runs this season, and Ronde is proud of his brother, but he can't help feeling a little down when Tiki gets all the glory. If Ronde hadn't been leading the way with his blocks, Tiki wouldn't have been clear to score. Ronde thinks nobody notices the guy who blocks; they only notice the guy who scores. Will the day ever come when Ronde will get his chance? Written by two NFL superstars, this story of perseverance and teamwork will inspire. Barry Root's glowing illustrations bring to life all the excitement and energy of a great game and a team working together
