Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Play Football the NFL Way is the finest instructional book I have ever read. It examines, explains, and illustrates the important fundamental and skills so vital in playing the game. I found it to be concise and complete. It is ideally suited for the young aspiring athlete, to the developing high school or college player, and yes, even the top professional player. For coaches at all levels of competition, this is an excellent handbook that can be used as a reference or serve as the basic source of their work."—Bill Walsh, NBC Sports and former head coach, San Francisco 49ers.

"The most complete book of drills and techniques I ever have read. Play Football the NFL Way is must reading for every coach, no matter where he coaches for the level of competition." —LaVell Edwards, head coach, BYU, and past president American Football Coaches Association

"Tom Bass has taken his years of experience and organized them into an easy-to-read coaching manual that covers every phase of the game." —R.C. Slocum, head coach, Texas A&M University

"One of the most thorough, informative, and complete football books I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Tom Bass has a great gift as a teacher and fundamentalist. His position-by-position drills and 'Winning Points' comments are invaluable for any coach at any level."

—John B. Featherstone, head coach, El Camino College

"Tom Bass is one of the great minds of the game of football...I have read his book and heartily endorse it as a teaching tool for coaches and football classes." —Jim Sweeney, head coach, Fresno State University

"Play Football the NFL Way is without a doubt the most complete detailed, and descriptive book on football drills and techniques that I have read. A masterpiece for coaches—Bass knows football." —Spike Dykes, head coach, Texas Tech University
