Im a Defensive Coordinator/Secondary Coach at the high school level.

This book does a great job of covering Secondary coverages thoroughly.

Route and Route Package recognition is one of the most benificial skills

I tech my DBs and Im always looking for new info in the area. This book,

in my opinion, provides the essential information a young DB coach needs to

properly equip his players for success. A must for Defensive Back coaches.

veryy good book. goes beyond just the basic drop into coverage and hope the receiver comes close to you. I have already used information from this book with my linebackers and secondary players, and they are already improving.

A must read for coaches at any level who are considering deploying pattern reading to their zone pass defense system. Be sure to adapt the principles to the environment you're competing in.

This book covers everything a coach will need to understand the concept of pattern-reading, and how to coach it. The book is independent of defensive scheme, and is skilfully written to mesh with whatever scheme you're running. This makes the book invaluable and timeless, as what I and my kids learn this season will still apply next season when we run a different defensive scheme.
