I would like to start off by saying that I am the Head Coach for the Lake City Stars. We are a Semi-Professional Football team playing in the Empire Football League. What this book offers is incredible. It lends different ideas and concepts from a variety of different coaches. I have been able to personally take many of the concepts that are in this book, and apply them to my own team. It focus' on the complete game of football, Offense, Defense, and Special Teams. It is a must for any coach who wants to establish a high amount of success in this extremely great game of football.

Format: Paperback
Of the numerous football guides I've read, this is the first book that actually went beyond the X's and O's of football. As the title says, it not only discusses the on-field game, but also preparation, team building, and the mental side of the game.
This book touches interesting topics and is probably intended for giving some more food for thought and different angles on coaching issues. It is not exactly a DIY-manual or a literal step-by-step gude for all football coaches on how to build a successful team.
While some of the chapters are a bit academic and subject to cross your personal views, this book is a recommended especially for those who are just starting their coaching career or coach youth and junior football.

This book was excellent. It covers offensive and defensive theories for any type of team. It was required reading for my Coaching class at WVU.

Format: Paperback
This book was a BIG disappointment. I bought this book hoping to learn the strategies behind each type of different offense, how to run the system, different formations and looks to fool the defense, pretty much more in-depth information but this book offers none of that. This book is the most BASIC piece of crap ever. It looks like a bunch of piled up madden plays put together in a bind and sold as a book. It gives about 3 BASIC plays for each different offense. There's about a 3 page maximum length per different offensive system which vaguely touches upon the surface of each offensive system, so you won't really know why you're running it except that you're running it. For example, one of the first plays the book touches upon is the I-Formation and Toss right or Student body right. Like I said before, very basic and won't help much if you're a coach trying to expand your knowledge on football. This is my first and will be my last purchasing a book by AFCA and had I known AFCA made books this bad, I would've never bought it :)

Some of you might say "What about beginning coaches?" I'd still say no because this book doesn't explain anything to where you can understand why a certain play is drawn up that way and once your players asks you "Coach, why are we doing this?" It's going to make you do the shoulder shrug and look/feel dumb.

But for a good read, I recommend "Coaching the T-Bone Offense" by Al Baldock. I hope to find a book of that caliber to read because the difference is once you read a book like that, you'll feel like you know the system inside and out.

I just got a job coaching and thought that I would pick up a book to help me in learning the ins and outs of the game. I have found it here. Thi is one excelent book. I played some college ball and now am going to coach, but I have learned a ton of things that o would not know until you start researching the game. EXCELENT..

A book that any coach should have. It gets the wheels going in your mind allowing you to develop new schemes. Its interesting to read other famous coach's ideas on topics like the Double Wing, Passing from your own endzone, and using the 50 front.

This book is an excellent source for all age levels. It gives various offenses and defenses to run and use with your team. I love it! It has really come in handy at my school.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book covers all aspects of the game from the very best college coaches - Paterno, Bowden, Spurrier, etc. Each 'chapter' is about three pages long; a coach diagrams a play for you and tells you the philosophy behind it. It has excellent illustrations. I have used it as a resource for years. The only downside is the book has been on the market for many years now, so the Spread Offenses we have seen so much of in the past several years are not part of the book. This book covers offense, defense, and special teams. As a former high school and college coach I can attest it will work for both those levels of football.
