A Significant Football Resource

You Can Do More!

Today’s post is significant for three reasons…

  • I am reviewing a great offensive football coaching resource, The Zone Offense: Create a Structured System
  • I am highlighting some innovative methods available to better teach whatever offensive or defensive system you use
  • I am introducing an outstanding coaching resource, Coach Keith Grabowski

zone offeseCoach Grabowski’s new iBook, The Zone Offense: Create a Structured System is one of the best coaching resources that I have ever read…. and you really do so much more than read it… you read it, you watch it, you interact with it, you takenotes in it.  It is a coaching clinic, webinar, PowerPoint, film session, drill guide, tutorial, etc… all rolled into one coaching resource.  It really is as if you had the opportunity to spend a week (or more!) with Coach Grabowski, his staff, and players when he was at Baldwin Wallace University.

Coach Grabowski starts at the…

Dynamic Content in The Zone Offense: Create a Structured System

My first ibook 101+ Pro Style Pistol Offense Plays  was loaded with dynamic content.  The new iBook The Zone Offense:  Create a Structured System includes even more.  Here’s a quick inventory of the content included:

75 Interactive Presentations totaling 622 slides.  Most of these include animation.

2 minute 50 second introduction video

40 game film cut-ups with press box and end zone angles totaling 13 minutes.

16 instructional videos totaling 35 minutes.

That’s 51 minutes of video alone!  A DVD costs you $40 and gives you slightly more in terms of video minutes.  The iBook is just $29.99 and is packed with more depth and detail than you can get in a video or book separately.

Get it for your iPad or Mac from the iBookstore.

New iBook – The Zone Offense: Create a Structured System




Screen Shot 2014-03-19 at 4.32.13 PM

My new iBook is now available on the iBookstore.  Get it here. This is a title I have been working on for years.  I wanted to do more than present what was a very effective play for us (10.3 yards per carry); I wanted to share the process we used for creating a tightly integrated offensive system.

While the book goes into the details for every position in running the play, it also illustrates a process that will work to create an effective offensive system.  This theme is covered throughout the book and includes the following:

I worked to harness the power of the interactivity with the dynamic content using even more tools than my first iBook 101+ Pro Style Pistol Offense Plays:

Frame by Frame play analysis.

Screen Recording of technique and fundamental explanations.

Hundreds of slides worth of Keynote/Power Point type of presentations.

Multiple angle game film.


Still shots.

No more losing the scraps of paper or napkins you write your own diagrams and ideas on.  They are forever saved in the iBook with interactive note taking, highlighting, and play diagramming.  I wrote a simple app for play diagramming in the book.  It works best with a stylus, but none the less, your ideas are there for you to refer back to in the iBook. (see below).

Like my first iBook, this is the perfect blend of text and dynamic content.  It’s better than having a book and DVD combined into one.

More will be coming soon.  Stay tuned for an exciting announcement.

My new iBook is nearly complete.  The new book goes beyond the utilization of the platform and technology displayed in my first book.  I’ve discovered new and better ways to help illustrate and explain concepts.

This book will contain even more dynamic content than my first book and be even more user friendly.

The book is designed to explain a process for developing and evolving an offensive system.  It pays close attention to not just finding a cookie cutter approach of adapting someone else’s system, but rather explains a process for analyzing, researching and developing a system that accommodates the adjustments that are needed from year to year with the different skill sets of the players within your system.

The process is illustrated through using examples from an offense that produced Ohio’s leading rusher and scorer when we used it at the high school level.  The offense was a multiple personnel, multiple formation zone run game based offense that re-wrote our record books.  The process we used taught us a lot about how to put together an offense that is effective year in and year out while being able to adapt to changes to our team as well as the opponents on our schedule.

Developing philosophies, teaching methods, creating position drills around what actually happens in the game are focused on in each volume.

Strategies and examples for implementation are provided with play diagrams, animated step by step analysis of plays versus different defenses, as well game film with both press box and end zone views.

Again, it’s much more than you would get in a book or a dvd separately.
