boy w/ learning prob; something happens to change him

junior15

I'm looking for a story I once read about a high school student who has a little trouble learning. He has to study real hard to keep up. He also plays on the football team (defense, I think). Something happens and all of a sudden he starts having an easier time learning and then can learn thing really easily. He ends up asking to play offense and leans the playbook overnight.

That's about all I can remember about the story and I hope I'm not mixing up two different stories.

Thanks

Could it be "Mayhem in a Pill" by Shinerdrinker?

I think you are referring to my story, "Faster than a Speeding Bullet."

An honorable mention.

The pattern here is probably odds stacked against them yet they come out a winner.(successful stories)

I forgot the titles but bear with me, people here will probably recognize them so you won't have to worry.

The first one was about a guy with a reading problem, it was probably dyslexia, idk, he like's baking pizzas.

The other one, was of a guy probably same as the first one because when he was a baby, his umbi cord wrapped around his neck or something. Both of his parents died leaving him a fortune(this is crucial to the plot) and he also likes to design on CAD.

Both are very uplifting stories.

The Millionaire Next Door by Lazlo Zalezac. You are correct, I think it would be one of the most recognized stories on site.

You are welcome. I really like for my stories to make that kind of impression.
