Coaching the Gap-Control Rover Defense (Second Edition) presents to the coach a defense that has been proven successful, not only on the blackboard, but also on the playing field against the best possible competition. This defense is not a hodge-podge defense, but a coordinated and consistent defense that can be highly successful with players of average ability. The most important benefits to be derived from the book are the details and coaching points that can be used by any coach to fit into his defensive scheme. Included are the technical skills for each position, presented in such a way that they can easily be understood and organized to allow for proper teaching progression. The great flexibility that comes with the movement of the rover gives the coach a weapon that is a continual problem for the offense, yet is a very simple maneuver for the defense.
