Crackback by John Coy

Project #1:
Song Project: Choose a song that you think Miles should have on his ipod. In a paragraph, connect lyrics from the song to scenes and situations from Crackback. In other words, tie the song lyrics to Miles and events in the book. Add in a youtube video link underneath your post! (You may not choose the same song as someone else who has posted before you--also, make sure lyrics are school appropriate.)


  1. The song "Boys of Fall" by Kenny Chesney would be a song Miles should have on his ipod. It talks about football and struggles you have to deal with on the way. It talks about the feeling that the players have before a game. "They didn't let just anybody in that club." Miles always thought it was an honor to wear his jersey at school when he was starting. Now, that he doesn't play anymore, he has other things that e is focusing on, like Lucia.

  3. I think the song "Till i collapes" by Eminem should be in Miles's iPod. The reason i think it should be in his iPod is because in the song talks about never give up no matter the circumstances.Miles didnt give up when he played football,no matter what.This would be a very good song that Miles should listen to before every game because it gets you in the zone."I'ma rip this sh** till my bone collapse.Till the roof comes off, till the lights go out.Till my legs give out, can’t shut my mouth" is a lyrics that remind me of Miles becasue when he plays football,he gives it his all.He doesnt give up,no matter what. He would play with anger, and he would play very good.Also i would connect this to Miles life outside of playing football, because no matter how hard life was, he didnt quit,he still overcame the obstacles.He didnt take the easy way,and use the steriods.He earned what he got.
