Meet the Author

Burrall Paye has been developing young basketball players' skills for more than 30 years. He is considered one of the game's best teachers.

Coach Paye enjoyed winning seasons in 36 of the 37 years that he coached. During his career he was honored as State Coach of the Year and National Federation Interscholastic Coaches Association Outstanding Coach (1985).

Now retired, Coach Paye shares his expertise through his speaking and writing. He has spoken at major clinics in the United States, Canada, Mexico, and Europe. His numerous articles have appeared in newspapers and magazines such as Scholastic Coach, Basketball Clinic, Coaching Clinic, Pro-Keds Digest, and Winning Hoops. He is the author of several books on basketball, including Playing the Post (Human Kinetics, 1996).

Paye earned his master's degree in 1965 from the University of Tennessee. He is a member of the National High School Coaches Association and the Virginia High School Coaches Association. He lives in Roanoke, Virginia, with his wife, Nancy.

Burrall's son Patrick Paye is a successful coach as well. He is currently the head boys' basketball coach at Northeastern High School in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. Patrick has never been a part of a losing season as a player or coach in a collegiate playing career and 11 years of coaching at the college and high school levels. He has rebuilt two traditionally losing programs into playoff teams during his career as a high school coach. Patrick and his wife, Michele, reside in Grandy, North Carolina.

    Burrall and Pat Paye have done it again. This is a thorough list of must-have skills for all players, regardless of their age. What a great resource for players, parents, coaches, and teachers. I highly recommend all of Coach Paye's books for coaches and players who are serious about basketball skill development and gaining a deeper understanding of the game. These two guys really know how to teach others to play basketball.

    The perfect book for coaches of young players who want to keep practices fun yet will ensure that the players learn the skills needed to play their best! There are 160 drills and most offer variations for beginners, intermediate, and/or advanced level players. Parents will also be able to give this book to their young player(s) so that practice time at home on the driveway court can be more beneficial.

    Burrall and Pat are two of the most knowledgeable basketball people I know. This book is very organized and detailed. It has a drill for every skill and covers all areas of the game. This is a wonderful resource for every coach and parent who is truly interested in learning and teaching the game of basketball. I would highly recommend it to every youth coach.
