Great New iBook!

Sorry I have not been around in a while, it was a busy football season.


I want to share with all of you a great new resource brought to you by Coach Grabowski.


It can be found HERE>

Coach Grabowski reached out to coaches from all over the country to contribute a chapter to this iBook and it does not disappoint.  I have been reading it all week.  For those who have missed out on my past blog post about iBooks, they are a remarkable resource.  Embedded within the chapters of the ibook are slideshows of drills, diagrams, and video.  This makes it a great teaching tool that makes the content more digestible and more helpful than a standard coaching book or coaching DVD.

I am one of the contributors to this Pistol "Anthology".

My chapter is titled "Offensive Line Play in the Power Scheme".

Mid 2013 we transitioned from a 4 wide spread system to a Pro Style Pistol Offense.
Power is the core of our offense.  My chapter focuses on how I teach the Power scheme both schematically, and with individual drills.  It includes written description, diagrams, and multiple video clips of some of my players executing the basic skills and drills needed to run Power. 

This year, with power being the focal point of our offense, we broke every single individual and team school rushing record (school has been around since the 1920s).
We rushed for over 3500 yards this year!


This iBook is an excellent resource for all things Pistol.  I highly suggest you all check it out!
