Coach Tepper does a fantastic job of going through every detail that is important for a linebacker. Coach Tepper makes sure this book is practicle for both inside and outside linebackers in both the 4-3 and 3-4 defenses. Has helped me refocus on the most important aspects of linebacking, the hit and shed, tackling, and persuit.

I was playing offensive line last year for my high-school football team, and I wanted to get in shape and be prepared to play linebacker, and this book has done just that! It provides in-depth analysis of what a linebackers job is, and how to make him better at it. I recommend this book for aspiring linebackers and coaches alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Linebacker Fundamentals from A to Z 25 May 1999
By A Customer
If you are a linebacker or a linebacker coach, then this book is for you. It takes you into the real world of linebackers, mostly at the collegiate level and gives you coaching techniques as well as basic and advanced drills and techniques for the players. A must read for the linebacker and their coaches.
