Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Since entering the coaching profession in 1972, I’ve gained a great deal of insight from many different coaches to form my strategic approach to the game, Now one of the very best collections of offensive football wisdom is available in one book from the American Football Coaches Association. Offensive Football Strategies features the schemes, formations and plays that have been producing points, wins, and championships for the past 40 years. It doesn’t matter if you’re a high school or college coach, or what offensive philosophy you have, this book provides a wealth of information for a more successful scoring attack.”

Phillip Fulmer

About the Author


Since its establishment in 1922, the American Football Coaches Association has striven to provide a forum for the discussion and study of all matters pertaining to football and coaching and to maintain the highest possible standards in football and the coaching profession. These objectives, first declared by founders Alonzo Stagg, John Heisman, and others, have been instrumental in the AFCA's becoming the effective and highly respected organization it is today.

The AFCA now has more than 10,000 members, including coaches from Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan, and Russia. Through annual publications and several newsletters, the Association keeps members informed of the most current rules changes and proposals, proper coaching methods, innovations in techniques, insights in coaching philosophy, and business conducted by the board of trustees and AFCA committees. A convention is held each January to give members a special opportunity to exchange ideas and recognize outstanding achievement.

The Association promotes safety in the sport and establishes strong ethical and moral codes that govern all aspects of football coaching. In addition, the AFCA is involved in numerous programs that ensure the integrity of the coaching profession and enhance the development of the game. It works closely with the National Collegiate Athletic Association, the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, the National Football League, the National Football Foundation and Hall of Fame, Pop Warner, and other organizations involved in the game of football. Indeed, one of the goals of the Association is to build a strong coalition—TEAM AFCA—of football coaches who will speak out with a unified voice on issues that affect the sport and profession.

The AFCA is the team of the football coaching profession. All current and former football coaches or administrators involved with football are encouraged to join.

I've read quite a few books on the game of football. Not being a coach, I don't think most people would want to pick this up, but for those who love the game itself will find this an indispensible reference. The book is composed of short articles by college coaches which deal with one small apspect of offence or a certain type of attack at a time. Although the college game is much simpler than the NFL, the insights I've picked up by reading this book have completely changed the way I watch football, be it college, CFL, or NFL. If I move to a different location where I can join a high school coaching team, this book will be soon find the pages being worn out. Absolutely excellent!

This book is one of the most comprehensive guides to offense that I have ever encountered. It includes almost 750 diagrammed plays from some of the top names in football including Bob Devaney and Tom Osborne, as well as many other college and high school football coaches. This text would be a valuable addition to any coaches library. It will definitely add variety to any offense and add many new twists and schemes to any offense whether you have an option team or a passing based offense. I think it would be a very wise investment.

AFCA and Human Kinetics have produced a gem of a book which will be of most help to intermediate coaches -- that is, those who have a few years' experience under their belts, and are looking for new ideas in offensive systems, or for new plays to run from within their favorite offensive system.
While the age of some of the articles may seem troubling, it can in fact be a real advantage. Football offenses are so subject to trends and cycles that anything which is not current can be successful because it comes as a surprise. A defensive analogy would be the 5-2 defense -- "America's defense" throughout the 70's and much of the 80's, but almost unknown in some regions today, and thus a valuable surprise weapon.
The same holds true on offense, and the riches this book displays are a real treasure trove -- the triple option (from the wishbone, I formation and split-back veer); the Wing-T; and various pass-oriented spread and one-back systems are all covered by some of the most prominent names in coaching from the last three decades.
This isn't the best place to start for beginning coaches, nor the modern state of the art for cutting-edge types, but for the rest of us it is an excellent place to begin the next stage of our never-ending quest for football knowledge.

The book is geared for high school and college, but as a pre high school coach, I found alot of information to help at the youth level. There is alot of detail and drills that I have already used this year. If you are looking for information on various basic offensive formations and plays, you will find it here. Also, they cover basics on QB footwork and RB training. Lots of good stuff.

I coach football at the high school level and got a lot out of this book. Most of the articles are pulled from AFCA Summer Manuals and Convention notes through the years. I read an article or two a day last spring and it really got me in a creative football mode. Some of the articles are dated but football is so cyclical that it's a big benefit to be contrary. Some of the old articles by Paterno, Devaney, and Fry are the msot helpful. The articles are brief so look at this as a huge tray of appetizers to get you thinking about what you really want to study in depth. Highly recommended.

If you want to increase your knowledge of offensive football, this is definitely a resource that can help. It also talks about many of the offenses that were successful in the past such Trap option. It might be a great help to add some of these old tricks with some of the new ones for an added wrinkle.

Really enjoy these books and have been through most of this one with my highlighter and pen. The only complaint I have is that many of the proceedings inside are taken from the 70s and 80s. Since many concepts are timeless I don't mind it completely, but would like to see a larger mix of more up to date material.

I got this book when I started helping a Friend of mine coach his son's team. It's a good beginnning book for new coaches gives you a good idea of what would be a good to starting point to build a offense. Learned alot and so did the kids but that didn't stop us from getting the piss kicked out of us. Finished the season 2-8. Learned alot though and always next year
