Time to get back to football`s bare-ass basics. In an age of fruity sports drinks, Armani-ed agents, and the x`s and o`s taught online, the bedrock simplicity and timeless truths of John Heisman`s Principles of Football will knock the wind out of you like a four-man tackle deep behind the line of scrimmage. Available for the first time since the 1920s, this classic book (which includes over 40 of Heisman`s game plays) is perfect for every young player and coach alike, as well as lovers of the game.

Heisman`s coaching style and philosophy are unparalleled by the likes of Vince Lombardi, Bear Bryant, Mike Ditka, Tom Landry, Chuck Noll, and others and his innovations influence the game to this day: he invented of the Heisman shift (forerunner to the T formation) and legalized the forward pass, for example. But the greatest testimony to his savvy and sportsmanship are in his own words, his diltillation of what makes the games and its players great.

The no-loss attitude that plays in Heisman`s locker room will no doubt win in the school room and the board room. Heisman articulately maps out the benefits of the game in terms of sportmanship, gentlemanly skilles, self-control, will power, and clear thinking, along the way demonstrating his clear love for the his coaches and players alike. Principles of football includes Heisman`s time-tested, timeless tips on strategy, tactics, drills, nuitrition, training, injury, and, foremost, how to play the `mental game.`

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.
