A Special Teams Coach’s Dream
By FirstDown PlayBook on Apr 22, 2019

FirstDown PlayBook has a special place in our heart for special teams coaches. Rarely do they get the credit they deserve and frequently catch the blame when things go wrong across the board on a football team.

The best special teams coaches spend their time running down individual players whenever they can find them to coach them up. If that means catching them in the locker room as they are getting dressed or at the training table or in the hallway at school, then that’s where you coach them. That’s just the way it is.

You never have enough time to coach all of the little intricacies that go with this phase of football and most of the time it’s the player’s second focus as far as his contributions to the team. So having said this, a special teams coach needs to be a great communicator and they have to do it the most efficient way possible.

The new FirstDown PlayBook 2.0 Draw and Edit Tool is a special teams coach’s dream. It allows them to quickly design professional looking diagrams and in a fraction of the time. How? Well, it’s because FirstDown PlayBook has already done most of the work for them.

If you are a special teams coach, do yourself a favor and watch this video. This will change the way you approach your work week. As coaches like to say, you will find yourself spending a lot more time with the “Jimmies & Joes” and less time with the “X’s & O’s” and that’s a great thing if you are a football coach.

FirstDown PlayBook is the only Digital Football PlayBook that gives you access to over thirty five thousand football plays, schemes and technique help all designed by coaches and players with NFL experience. FirstDown Playbook is also the official PlayBook resource of USA Football and Football Canada..
