What People are Saying About This

Dick Vermeil
Lou's linebackers consistently play as well or better than other linebackers I've seen, and they aren't always the most talented. The answers to how and why they perform so well are in this book. You're in for a learning experience.
— Dick Vermeil, Head Coach, St. Louis Rams
Fisher DeBerry
One of the most comprehensive position books I have ever read, by one of the game's best to have ever coached the position! Lou Tepper's book on linebacker play is a must for every coach's library and also would be a great supplement for their players' notebooks. Some of Lou's ideas and concepts and drills have certainly influenced our thinking about linebacker play here at the Academy.

Steve Logan
When I worked with Lou Tepper at the University of Colorado, I was watching one of the best teachers of the fundamentals in the college game. From linebacking to the overall defensive scheme, Lou's players always maximized their potential.
— Steve Logan, Head Football Coach, East Carolina University
Bill McCartney
This book is a must for every linebacker, head coach, and defensive coach. It will be the classic reference on linebacking for many years to come. This work is long overdue. I wish Complete Linebacking had been available when I began coaching.
— Bill McCartney, Former Head Football Coach, Colorado University

At Indiana University of Pennsylvania, he led the Crimson Hawks to an NCAA playoff appearance and was named PSAC West Coach of the Year for the third time.

In compiling an impressive 101-75-2 overall record as head coach, Tepper is well known for his genius on the defensive side of the ball.

This is a book for coaches and players alike. This book is all about fundamentals. It gives you drills you can implement to. I run almost all these drills in my practice. If you run a 3-4, in the last few chapters it gives you techniques on that as well.
