A great sports summer read, although about basketball, not football is "Play Their Hearts Out" by George Dohrmann.  Great story about the "ugly underbelly" of youth sports.

Two of my favorite non-football books are Heaven is a Playground, Rick Telander, about his summer spent on a basketball court in New York in the early '70s; and Bang the Drum Slowly by Mark Harris, a baseball novel made into a good movie starring Robert De Niro in a early role.
