Coaching Youth Football Defense, 3rd edition

Coaching Youth Football Defense, 3rd edition

  • $ 2995

My book has over 200 pages on designing and coaching defense, choosing the correct players for each position, achieving near-perfect tackling technique, as well as other topics that a coach needs to know to run a team like videotaping, scouting, substitutions, parents meeting, and many other topics. The book features the 10-1 and Gap-8 defenses, but discusses other defenses at length.

I recommend that you buy Coaching Youth Football and Gap-Air-Mirror Defense for Youth Football before you buy Coaching Youth Football Defense. Coaching Youth Football Defense contains a number of valuable chapters that do not appear in any of my other books, namely

  • 8-2-1 and 10-1 defenses
  • Videotape
  • Scouting
  • Analyzing scouting reports
  • Substitution schedule
  • Game-day preparation
  • Tracking plays
  • Penalty avoidance
  • Scoring on defense
  • Pass defense
  • Psyche up
  • Stance
  • Coaches meetings
  • Pursuit angles
  • Awards banquet
  • Parents meeting
  • Other defenses
  • Teamwork
  • Flip flopping
  • Making weight
