Top Football Coaching Books List – Belichick Collection – 4

do your job - bill belichickThis is the fourth blog post in the Belichick football books collection.  Thanks again to the Naval Academy for sending me the list of books in the rare football book collection donated by Coach Belichick to them.

I have tried to provide links to Amazon and other vendors that are selling these new and used american football books.  Prices are high to low on some of the great football books so shop around.  Sometimes it depends on the quality of the older used books.  I try to by ‘good” or higher condition books.  Acceptable condition you might need to repair some of the older fb books. You can find most of the used books that are not “rare for around $12 to $25.  You can also find some of the older football books in online archives for free to need to “Google It”.

I hope you enjoy the list of some of the top football coaching books. I have many of them and started buying more from the Belichick library list.  Some of the info and football wisdom in these is very good, especially from the older coaching books.  How much would you pay for a priceless gem that helps your team win?  I’ve found many and hope to find many more.  Enjoy….

Football Coaching Books – Belichick Collection 2

do your job - bill belichick

This is the 2nd post in the Belichick Collection of football coaching books.  The Naval Academy was kind of enough to send me the list of his football books in the collection on campus.  Coach B’s dad coached for the Academy so they were lucky enough to house his collection of some of the best coaching books on football.  

The Belichick Collection contains some of the best American football coaching books ever published.  These great football coaching books have some of the top football coaching strategies from decades past to the birth of football. 

Here are the second 50 football books from the collection. You can find the first 50 in the list here. If I found the book in a Google search I linked the book title to the seller. Enjoy.

Youth Football Coach’s Reading List

It’s almost a new year, 2012.  Can you believe it?  No, me either.

If you are like me, you are starting to think about your next youth football season and developing your plans. Since we play Spring ball here in Keller, TX, we’ve already had a few coaches meetings .  What did we do right, wrong, and should have done?

It seems like each season after these meetings and before tough games, I will pull out one of the books below and reference one or two things, or just re-read or scan the book again for ideas and or answers.  I probably have 50 or so books in my youth football library, but these are my favorites and trusted stand bys:

  1. The Toss by Jerry Vallotton
  2. Coaching Offensive Lineman by Dave Christensen
  3. Coaching Team Defense by Fritz Shurmur
  4. Directory of Football Defenses by Drew Tallman
  5. Complete Book of Drills for Winning Football – Michael D. Koehler
  6. Coaching Youth Football by John T. Reed
  7. Winning Youth Football – Dave Cisar
  8. Coaching Football by Tom Flores
  9. Football Scouting Methods by Steve Belichick
  10. Football; principles and play by David M Nelson

Check out my youth football coaching books too…. Click Here for my youth football books

I usually buy these books used on Amazon.  I wait until I can get a good copy for around $10 plus shipping.  Many of these books are out of print and sometimes demand a high price.  Wait a few months and you may find a copy on Amazon or Ebay.  Also, Google the author and they may have an old copy for sale or an ebook copy.

Yes, I know many of these books are older books.  But think about it, youth football is mainly a running game like football was in its early days before passing became so popular in the mid 1970’s.  Trust me these are great football books.  This is my top 10 best coaching youth football books as of today.

Other good web resources that I frequent are Gregory Double Wing , DumCoach Boards and USA Football.

Have a great New Year.

Cheers,
Coach Parker
