9781578988068: Principles of Football

2009 reprint of 1921 First edition. John William Heisman (1869-1936) was a prominent American football player and college football coach in the early era of the sport and is the namesake of the Heisman Trophy awarded annually to the season's best college football player. He was an innovator and theoretician of the sport. He was a proponent of the legalization of the forward pass in 1906 and he originated the "hike" or "hep" shouted by the quarterback to start each play. He suggested that the game be divided into quarters instead of halves. Heisman subsequently became the athletics director of the former Downtown Athletic Club in Manhattan, New York. In 1935 the club began awarding a Downtown Athletic Club trophy for the best football player east of the Mississippi River. On December 10, 1936, just two months after Heisman's death on October 3, the trophy was renamed the Heisman Memorial Trophy, and is now given to the player voted as the season's best nationwide collegiate player. Principles of Football is Heisman's theoretical contribution to the sport, and remains a classic text in the field.

From Library Journal:

In 1922, the legendary coach assembled this football manual, which offers how-to instructions on tackling, passing, signaling, etc., as well as information on proper diet and theories on defense and offense. This edition has been updated with a list of all Heisman Trophy winners up to 1999. Some of his ideas are now dated, but this volume still offers much sound advice as well as being a true piece of Americana.
