If you aren’t a “twitter guy” you might not know why I have the hashtag (#) before HOW WE WON above.  It’s what I’m using to promote the book I’m working on about the philosophies of the 2011 State Champion Head Football Coaches. I’ve titled it How We Won: Inside The Locker Room of State Champion Football Coaches.

To those who listened to me talk about this project on HighSchoolFootballAmerica.com‘s radio program, welcome!  Thank you for checking it out.  I really appreciate you taking the time to do so.

To date, I’ve had 107 high schools respond to my query about their 2011 State Championship story.  If you are a 2011 State Champion whom I missed, please send me an email at statechampsbook@gmail.com.

A list of the schools who will be featured in this book are below.  I’ve really appreciated hearing from these coaches, and reading about their philosophies. This research is simply invaluable!  I’ve never seen anything like it.  Coaches will now be able to read about what made these teams great.  You will be able to read the philosophies of more than 100 State Champion Head Football Coaches in one place!  I can’t wait to have it done for you to read!

You can click on each school to take you to their Maxpreps page!
