It’s Not What You Know Coach…
By FirstDown PlayBook on Jan 25, 2018

You coaches who use FirstDown PlayBook or even the of you who just follow us here on the Coaches Community page know that we talk a lot about how much detail and time we put into our coaching points that accompany every one of our football plays, defenses and special teams schemes.

Sometimes what we don’t point out enough is that it’s just as important that we draw plays up with color and provide them in an interactive format for the players. Why is that important? Well, there’s an old football saying that goes something like this…”It ain’t what you know coach, it’s what they know that matters.”

That’s why everything we do here at FirstDown PlayBook is designed to help the coaches but at the end of the day it’s all about helping THEM. A football coach’s success or failure depends on how well he or she can help the players because THEY are who needs to understand what you want to get done on the field. If they don’t understand it then it does not matter how much football knowledge you have.

That’s why there is a movement away from teaching the millennial and Gen Z generations football the same way we taught football players in the 1990’s. How can we expect to teach these kids with the out-dated methods we use and get anything other than what we often get? Today’s players have been brought up on tablets and phones with colorful animated interactive objects and yet football has somehow failed to keep up.

This is one of the reasons that we are drawing our football plays with the detail that we do here at FirstDown PlayBook. We are football coaches and we understand the glazed over look in the players’ meetings. We are determined to change that one play drawing at a time. A combination of interactive football plays drawn in a way that makes the football player want to look at them and learn from them will help change the game of football.
