While most quarterback coaching information addresses plays and schemes, Developing a Championship Quarterback, by John Bond, focuses on quarterback mechanics and fundamentals. It addresses virtually every fundamental that a quarterback needs to develop in order to become a championship quarterback. This book also covers several factors that are rarely talked about, like film study and the year-round process that quarterbacks need in order to become the best that they can become. Furthermore, this book reviews the process it takes to make a quarterback into a more consistently accurate passer.

What coaches are saying:

Coach Bond played a very important part in my success as a quarterback. Not only did he do a great job of teaching me the physical aspects of the position, he also taught me how to approach the position like a professional. All the little intangibles that make you a successful quarterback (watching film, communicating with teammates, being a leader, and taking charge when you have to) were all things that Coach Bond educated me on. I have used all his guidance from our time at Illinois State University to be able to generate a pro career of 15 years and counting.

At West Point, the entire Academy experience is focused on becoming a leader of our nation’s most precious possession, its sons and daughters. Coach John Bond taught me more about being a leader (on and off the football field) than any academic professor, military tactical officer, or other coach I have ever been around. Coach is a mastermind of the X’s and O’s, game day play calling, and pushing every individual player to his fullest potential. But most importantly, Coach Bond helped transform me from an impressionable college kid into a confident young man.

After the 2004 season, Coach Bond’s main goal for me was to get rid of my slow delivery. Being a baseball player my whole life, I transferred my big looping delivery to the football field. After extensive drill work throughout the off-season, Coach Bond was able to compact my throwing motion, which allowed me to lead the country in passing percentage. In 2005, out of all the quarterbacks that season (including top-ranked quarterbacks like Matt Leinart, Vince Young, and Brady Quinn), I was the only one to throw for over 70 percent. My accuracy and success were truly determined by Coach Bond’s off-season drills.

Coach Bond was my quarterback coach when I played at Georgia Tech. I still refer to the lessons I learned from him about mechanics, pre- and post-snap reads, and decision-making when coaching my quarterbacks at Northwestern State. Coach Bond also does a tremendous job when it comes to relating to his players. As a quarterback coach myself, I still talk to Coach Bond on a regular basis about everything that relates to offensive football and great quarterback play.

I’m sure at times it was hard to tell whether I was turning a double play at shortstop or throwing a slant route. Being mechanically and fundamentally sound was never a strong suit of mine. The combination of being blessed with a little talent and having enough practice at throwing (albeit the wrong way) made me pretty good. Good enough to land me in the Southeastern Conference playing for the Mississippi State Bulldogs. No coach at any level, high school or college, had ever tried to fix my mechanics—until my senior year when Coach Bond became my offensive coordinator. While most coaches would’ve left my footwork and throwing motion alone being it was my senior year, that wasn’t going to fly with Coach Bond. I may have been a good player doing things my way, but he wanted to see me be great. Due to his unique ability to teach and relate to his quarterbacks, I improved more as a passer in the lone season I was lucky enough to spend under his wing than I had in my other four years of college football combined. No coach has ever had a more positive impact on me as a player, as well as a man, than Coach Bond. And for that I am forever grateful to him.
