Another boarding school, football and adventure story from the prolific Ralph Henry Barbour. When Riverport's football eleven becomes an elite squad of the friends of the captain and manager, rather than a team based on merit, 15-year-old Evan Kingsford and his chums start a secondary team (the Independents). When the Independents begin a more successful season than the school team, will they supplant the latter? A mix of study, football, hazings, hijinks and other adventures occur, in typical Barbour style. [Suggest a different description.]
