Sports Illustrated Writer Tim Layden Examines the Origin and Evolution of Offensive & Defensive Schemes in New Book

by Jeff Fisher
High School Football America

Award-winning Sports Illustrated writer Tim Layden has written a great book that I highly recommend reading to get you ready for the upcoming matter what level of football you are interested in.

Blood, Sweat and Chalk takes readers inside the game's greatest schemes and plays without getting to dry and technical.  Layden does a magnificent job of weaving interviews with the game's legendary coaches...Bill Belichick, Don Coryell, Joe Gibbs, Darrell Royal and Tom Osborne...into the X's and O's that many fans don't understand.

The journey starts at the turn-of-the-century Single Wing and ends at the crazy A-11 offense that was created at Piedmont High School in northern California.

To learn more about the book, listen to my High School Football America podcast interview with Layden below.
