A typical email or DM I get at least 5-7 times per week in the offseason goes something like this:

“Coach Fore, I love all of the content you put out there, and I’ve purchased your Shield Punt stuff, it’s tremendous.  I also bought your 28 Kick and Punt Returns Manual.  I’ve listened to all of your Special Teams podcasts, and read all of your articles on Special Teams.  Do you have any other resources for me?  Our Return Game needs to get better!”  

   Now I can say yes!  

My latest product is a power point is from my Glazier Clinic talk about the Kick Return game.

It is titled Man vs. Zone Schemes: Stealing Yards Any Way You Can!
