The GFL is a "Space Opera" series of books described as STAR WARS meets THE BLINDSIDE meets THE GODFATHER. 

Set in a lethal pro football league 700 years in the future, THE ROOKIE is a story that combines the intense gridiron action of "Any Given Sunday" with the space opera style of "Star Wars" and the criminal underworld of "The Godfather." Aliens and humans alike play positions based on physiology, creating receivers that jump 25 feet into the air, linemen that bench-press 1,200 pounds, and linebackers that literally want to eat you. Organized crime runs every franchise, games are fixed, and rival players are assassinated. 

This multi-part scifi/crime/sports mashup follows a professional American football team across a far-future galaxy. Travel to new worlds, meet new races, and put their quarterback into the dirt.

Each novel and novella in the series is or will have its own season, so be sure to start from the beginning.

Season 1: THE ROOKIE (GFL Book I) | 27 episodes 
Follow the story of Quentin Barnes, a 19-year-old quarterback prodigy who has been raised all his life to hate and kill those aliens. Quentin must deal with his racism and learn to lead, or he'll wind up just another stat in the column marked "killed on the field."
Season 2: TITLE FIGHT (GFL Novella I) | 10 episodes
Season 3: THE STARTER (GFL Book II) | 36 episodes
Next Season: THE ALL-PRO (GFL Book III)


Written and Performed by Scott Sigler


Produced by AB Kovacs and Arioch Morningstar

Engineered by Steve Riekeberg

Just spectacular

The “football” is written well, and compelling. The world building is immersive and truly engaging.
I can’t recommend this strongly enough

Rory OG ,

Fantasy Footballs Finest

This story takes fantasy football to a whole other level. Whole it has nothing to do with NFL fantasy Football, Scott’s imagination drops you into a fantasy world of football far into the future! I love the story and listened to the (20+ episode) first season in 3 days.

Orgoprof ,

Could Scott Sigler surpass Ray Porter as my favorite narrator?

I have read almost everything Scott Sigler has written but I never tried the Galactic Football Leauge. Boy was I stupid! This is fantastic stuff. The story is fantastic so much more than just football. Highly creative take and what the NFL would be like a couple hundred years in the future. But the thing that sets this apart is the production! All species have unique accents and Scott is absolutely outstanding in his narration! Just give this a try and you will not be able to put it down!
