    This is an excellent book to understand how defense is played. This book will take you from A-Z on how each player should align, what his technique is, and how to play each type of run. This should be one of the books on any football coach's bookshelf. You will understand the game of football after reading this book.

    Arnsparger's Coaching Defensive Football is by far the best defensive book on the market today. He goes into detail on fronts, coverages, blitzs plus a candid discussion of many other topics necessary to successful coaching. This book is definitely a five star product.
