Loved this book. I have done some coaching in my day and I loved reading about one of the all-time great coaches, LaVell Edwards. I love the fact that he took a personal interest in his players and that his demeanor was so interesting.

I am a big fan of Steve Young and loved reading the "Tribute" by him at the beginning of the book.

The biggest compliment I can pay Coach Edwards, is that we need more coaches like him in every sport, in every age-group of athletes.

Thank you, LaVell, for your contri

The value of patience, preparation, and optimism plus the value of horizontal leadership verses vertical leadership. LaVell loved football and competition, but always had respect and cordiality toward even his strongest competitors.
