The 3-deep 4-underneath zone coverage, often referred to as Cover 3, is one of the oldest coverages in football. It is still widely used today at all levels of the game. Cover 3 is geared to stop the run while controlling the pass. It easily aligns to any offensive formation and is simple for coaches to teach and for players to learn. This simplicity enables the players to play confidently. Confident players play faster with fewer mistakes. Fast teams that don’t make mistakes win more football games.<br /><br />This coverage can be utilized from any defensive structure or personnel grouping. The position names and player archetypes may be different, but the responsibilities and techniques described in this book are universal.
If I Only Knew...: Memories and Regrets from High School Distance...

Several years ago, I was looking for a way to inspire my cross country team. Up until that point, we had some success through hard work, belief, and an almost family-like atmosphere. With success comes complacency sometimes. This was definitely one of those times. Trying to motivate this group, I remembered a time when I heard Kevin Mawae speak at an FCA retreat. Kevin played football for LSU and the New York Jets. Kevin’s message was titled, “If I only knew…” where he proceeded to ask the question over and over again about choices he made in life: if he only knew what his coach sacrificed to coach him, if he only knew what his teammates really meant to him, if he only knew how short the time being an athlete truly was. Would he have done things differently?<br /> I thought back to this message and decided I wanted this team to know what they might be missing. I emailed several former runners and coaches asking each of them to complete the phrase, “If I only knew,” as it pertained to running cross country in high school. What follows is a collection of their answers. Whether you are looking to motivate your athletes as a coach, searching for motivation as a runner, or wondering if your time in high school athletics is truly worth it, I hope this book gives you some answers. <br /> I can’t guarantee success with this book, but I can tell you after reading these statements, two of my runners (Sara and Hayden) went on to when individual state championships in cross country at the end of that season. Each of them had to rally at the end of the race. Hayden had to hold off the state champion from the previous year while Sara had to pass the leader in the last 100 meters. Both wanted to end that race with no regrets and no if only’s. Together, they became the first male and female from the same school to win state titles in the largest classification in Louisiana in the same year.<br />-Kent Falting<br />

By exploring the traps that commonly limit success and developing your focused, driven mindset, dreams become reality. Only when you fully declare your Manifesto and commit to the plan of achieving it, will you reach your true potential. <br /><br />It is your choice – Are you willing to invest in you and your Manifesto?

<b>The founding editor of <i>The Wall Street Journal</i>’s sports section profiles the greatest teams in history and identifies the counterintuitive leadership qualities of the unconventional men and women who drove them to succeed.</b><br /><br /><i>The secret to winning is not what you think it is.</i><br /> <i>It’s not the coach. It’s not the star.</i><br /> <i>It’s not money. It’s not a strategy.</i><br /> <i>It’s something else entirely.</i><br /><br /> Several years ago, Sam Walker set out to answer one of the most hotly debated questions in sports: What are the greatest teams of all time? He devised a formula, then applied it to thousands of teams from leagues all over the world, from the NBA to the English Premier League to Olympic field hockey. When he was done, he had a list of the sixteen most dominant teams in history. At that point, he became obsessed with another, more complicated question: What did these freak teams have in <i>common</i>?<br /><br /> As Walker dug into their stories, a pattern emerged: Each team had the same type of captain—a singular leader with an unconventional skill set who drove it to achieve sustained, historic greatness.<br /><br /> Fueled by a lifetime of sports spectating, twenty years of reporting, and a decade of painstaking research, <i>The Captain Class</i> tells the surprising story of what makes teams exceptional. Drawing on original interviews with athletes from two dozen countries, as well as general managers, coaches, executives, and others skilled at building teams, Walker identifies the seven core qualities of this Captain Class—from extreme doggedness and emotional control to a knack for nonverbal communication to tactical aggression and the courage to stand apart.<br /><br /> Told through riveting accounts of some of the most pressure-soaked moments in sports history—from Bill Russell’s legendary “Coleman Play” in the 1957 NBA Finals to Barcelona’s “Figo Game” against Real Madrid in 2000—<i>The Captain Class</i> doesn’t just bring these events to life; it presents a fresh, counterintuitive take on leadership that can be applied to a wide spectrum of competitive disciplines.<br /><br /> The men and women who make up the Captain Class were never the most skilled athletes, nor were they gifted orators or paragons of sportsmanship. They were often role players who were allergic to the spotlight. In short, the seven attributes they shared challenge your assumptions of what inspired leadership looks like.<br /><br /><b>Advance praise for <i>The Captain Class</i></b><br /><br />“Well-researched, wildly entertaining, and thought-provoking. In <i>The Captain Class</i>, Sam Walker presents compelling narratives about the secret ingredient to the greatest teams of all time—and quickly makes you reexamine long-held beliefs about leadership and the glue that binds winning teams together.”<b>—Theo Epstein, President of Baseball Operations for the Chicago Cubs</b><br /><br />“In <i>The Captain Class</i>, Sam Walker gives us important and original insights into the mysterious ingredients of transformative leadership. A stunning mix of research and narrative.”<b>—Susan Cain, bestselling author of <i>Quiet</i></b><br /><br /> “If you care about leadership, talent development, or the art of competition, you need to read this immediately.”<b>—Daniel Coyle, bestselling author of <i>The Talent Code<br /><br /></i></b>“<i>The Captain Class</i> is a brilliant hybrid: one-part detective story and one-part leadership book, set in the world of sports, and dedicated to a fascinating mystery: What sets apart the greatest teams of all time? I’m not even a sports nut and I couldn't put it down.”<b>—Dan Heath, co-author of the <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>Made to Stick</i></b>

Norman Vincent Peale’s <i>The Power of Positive Thinking</i>, a classic bestseller, has inspired an optimistic perspective for millions of Americans. Now, in an inspirational and entertaining rebuttal, the legendary basketball coach Bob Knight explains why “negative thinking” will actually produce more positive results, in sports and in daily life. Coach Knight, the second-winningest coach in NCAA history with 902 victories, explains that victory is often attained by the team that makes the fewest mistakes. His coaching philosophy was to instill discipline by “preparing to win” rather than hoping to win. That meant understanding the downside and drilling his teams to prevent the things that could go wrong. And when his teams did win, he made sure they didn’t dwell on their success, but rather looked immediately to the challenges of the next game. He applies this lesson to business strategy as well.<br /><p>Coach Knight has long been inspired by his grandmother’s words, "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride.” As the first person to teach Knight about the power of negative thinking, this book is dedicated to her pragmatic spirit.
