Keith has written a great book for wrestling coaches. I think 101 Winning Strategies for Wrestling Coaches can help any coach transform a good program into a championship program and average wrestlers into champions. The way the book is organized makes it easy for coaches to identify those areas where they might need help from the pre-season to the post-season. Keith certainly helped me take a program that had never even had a state-placer to a state runner-up finish and three state champions.
