View By Tag Area Can Save You Time
By FirstDown PlayBook on Aug 3, 2018

As we move into the month of August and so many of you are working in FirstDown PlayBook, we wanted to go back and re-visit this post that explains the value of your FirstDown PlayBook “View By Tag” area.

We always suggest that you go to the main section of FirstDown PlayBook and use your “Play Finder” function first but as this article points out there are a lot of different ways to organize football plays, defenses and special teams schemes so we want you to know about all of them! Here you go…

When we first considered incorporating a “View By Tag” area on FirstDown PlayBook I honestly didn’t think much of it. After all, it’s something you see on a lot of websites and we were going to get you organized with your football playbook so many other ways it wouldn’t be that much of a big deal.

Boy were we wrong. Not only is the View By Tag area one of our most visited spots on FirstDown PlayBook we even find ourselves using it a bunch through out the day as we navigate through our 33,000 plus football plays.

The reason is pretty simple now that we think about it. There are just so many ways to organize and catalog football plays, defenses and special teams schemes that it just makes since that individual play drawings can be tagged several different ways.

So that’s what we do at FirstDown PlayBook. Whenever we draw up an offensive, a defensive or a special teams drawing we try to tag it so that it doesn’t just show up by formation or front or special teams scheme but it will also show up in the view by tag area labeled as say, “All Trap Runs” or say “Counter Runs”.

It’s not just our Varsity section that gets this treatment either. The Youth Football and Flag Football play drawings have their own special dedicated areas so you can get right to where you need to be and you can get there quickly! Watch this short video to see how our “View By Tag” area is just one more way FirstDown PlayBook is saving coaches their most valuable resource…their TIME.

FirstDown PlayBook is the only Digital Football PlayBook that gives you access to over thirty three 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..

On January 6, 2019 FirstDown PlayBook is going to hand the chalk back to you, the coach. You will finally have the capability of editing our database of plays, which should be pushing 40,000 by then, as well as create your own plays. Want it first and for less? Bang on the football to your left to learn how.
