Breaking Down Your Offensive Opponent

The 4th book from Coach Alexander.

Get the latest book by Coach Alexander. If you’ve ever used any ideas from his series of breakdown articles, this book compiles everything into one place and beefs up the content. Includes diagrams, names, and a process that streamlines the opponent breakdown system for you and/or your staff.


The purpose of this book is to give defensive staffs a manual designed to streamline the weekend and opponent break down process. Today, there are services that will even break down things for you. I believe that the analytics should stay in house. The moment you outsource your break down you lose control of the process. By keeping everything in house, you can create an organic view of the offense you are trying to attack. This process also develops your staff into “experts” in their own “fields.” For a DC or HC, this can be invaluable. I want this book to be something a DC or HC can buy for their staff and give to each member as a way to get everyone on the same page, and speaking the same language.
