I would highly recommend FirstDown PlayBook to any coach at any level. I was first introduced in preparation for the Under Armour All-American Game. The easy to use playbook maker, as well as the state of the art drawing tool, allowed us to install high-level schemes in a short amount of time.
Head Coach - Mission Viejo High School, CA
FirstDown PlayBook has been a huge time saver for our staff. We have found that it has a wealth of built-in knowledge and ideas that are very easy to use. Our staff not only uses it as a teaching tool for our players but also a learning tool for our coaches.

In terms of coaching tools, FirstDown PlayBook is a must-have for every football staff. The professionalism of the staff, the cohesiveness of the software, and its elite presentation combine for a compelling system that takes our coaching ability to the top.
Interim Head Coach - Rhodes College, TN
I specialize in all three phases as a coordinator on 11-man football and 8-man arena football and I have used FirstDown PlayBook to make all of my playbooks. I love FirstDown PlayBook. It is very simple to use with awesome information. I would recommend FirstDown PlayBook to all football coaches in the world!
Head Coach - South Florida Thunder & Special Teams Coordinator - Dillard High School, FL
“As an old school coach who’s struggled with technology, FirstDown PlayBook has been a game-changer. It’s allowed us to include details, coaching points and color to our playbooks and team presentations. It’s an absolutely effective teaching aid!”
Special Teams Coach - Delbarton School, NJ
I was introduced a few years ago and have been hooked ever since. As a defensive coordinator, FirstDown PlayBook has a ton of ideas to use in any defense. If it’s looking for a new scheme or a wrinkle in the defense, there is a wealth of knowledge.
Co-Defensive Coordinator - Lexington Christian Academy, KY
For high school football there are so many tools that are designed to help coaches better serve their players. FirstDown Playbook has carefully developed a product that is not only user friendly, but also driven by the folks who will ultimately use it in-season and out.
Head Coach - Calvert High School, MD
FirstDown PlayBook is different. It is done BY coaches, FOR coaches. This is not an app developed by ‘computer guys’. The depth and detail that has gone into this site is very impressive. The value is second to none.
Head Coach - Castle High School, IN
FirstDown PlayBook is an essential tool for our program. I used similar products, but this is SUPERIOR. My coaches and players are communicating more effectively and the results speak for themselves.
Head Coach - De Anza College, CA
FirstDown PlayBook is fast and easy. We literally used it on our college clinic visits to create the additions and changes which gave us the ability to put everything in our terminology. By far, the best tool of its kind on the market today.
Offensive Coordinator - Rocky Mountain High School, ID
FirstDown PlayBook played a huge role in our playoff run in 2019. It helped us be more efficient with our installs. The ability to digitally send our installs to our players certainly helped us out, specifically the younger players. The days of written playbooks/installs and wasting time with Hudl’s playbook feature are over.
Assistant Head Coach - Livonia Churchill High School, MI
FirstDown PlayBook has made a huge difference in our game preparation. During these trying times, it has been a huge advantage for staff communication and preparation.
Head Coach - Clearfield High School, PA
I would highly recommend FirstDown PlayBook to any coach at any level. It has helped me in being more efficient with our special teams installs, our practice structure and our weekly game planning. It has given us the ability to get information to our staff and players in a more detailed manner.
Special Teams Coordinator - Alcorn State University, MS
“In only our third year of the program, and just my second year as Head Coach, we won the VISAA Division III State Championship. I used FirstDown PlayBook this season extensively and the level of preparation it provided to our team made a huge difference.”
Head Coach - St. Michael the Archangel Catholic High School, VA
“I was one of FirstDown PlayBook’s first customers when they launched their 2.0 version in January 2019. Simply put, I needed a way to organize my playbook, installs and practice material. FirstDown PlayBook did that and a lot more.”
Running Backs Coach - University of Tennessee
“The amount of defensive help that FirstDown PlayBook offers a coach far surpasses anything I have seen anywhere else.”
Defensive Line Coach, Baltimore Ravens
“I saw how much our ARQ Athletics 7on7 program was using FirstDown PlayBook and it just made sense to provide it for our Elkhorn Athletic Youth Football coaches as well. It has been a tremendous asset for our coaches and that will only be magnified next year when the coaches can edit the plays.”
2001 Heisman Trophy Winner, Youth Coach, Midland University Assistant
“FirstDown PlayBook has a wealth of offensive ideas in an easy-to-use website for all levels of coaching. As an offensive coach looking for weekly game planning ideas, FirstDown PlayBook allows a coach to quickly and easily flip through thousands of offensive plays.”
