9780880113700: George Allen's Guide to Special Teams

This book shows coaches of American football the plays, strategies, and drills they need to produce first-rate, special teams. This fully illustrated book reveals everything coaches need to know about kick-offs, kick returns, punts, punt returns, extra points, and "gadget" plays for every special teams situation. George Allen's Guide to Special Teams is entertaining as well as informative. Allen describes coaching experiences to bring his points home. He concludes each chapter with "George Allen's Best," his profiles of the best special teams players, and concludes with his version of a "Special Teams Hall of Fame." The book also features appendixes including 20 scouting charts, 8 player handouts, special teams rules, and more.

From the Publisher:

"To my knowledge there has never been a more thorough or comprehensive book on the kicking game than this. I was impressed with many things in the book, but I was particularly delighted with its coaching points. George not only tells you what to do but how to do it. It is a book I will not only use now but will refer to quite often during the remainder of my coaching career."

Lou Holtz Former Head Football Coach University of Notre Dame

"Nobody is more qualified to write about special teams than George Allen. His influence has not only changed the concept of professional football, but has carried down through the collegiate and high school levels to the little leagues. No coach at any level can afford to be without this book if he wants to win."

Bill Walsh Former Head Coach San Francisco 49ers

"Improvement in special teams play has been dramatic since 1966. After George Allen hired Dick Vermeil as the first special teams coach, people began to realize what an important factor the teams can be in winning games. The coach who has Allen's new book handy is a step ahead of the competition whether he's coaching professional, college, high school, or Pop Warner teams. It's interesting to read, but more importantly, the book is crammed full of important information."

Tom Landry Former Head Coach Dallas Cowboys
