Coaching Football: Tips from a Pro

They say defense wins championships. Few coaches know that better than Joe Daniel.

As the defensive coordinator and offensive line coach at Prince George High School, Joe knows a thing or two about keeping offenses out of the end zone. He's also been writing about the game for years on joedaniel.com and discussing it on The Football Coaching Podcast. So yeah. He's a busy guy.

In this episode, Joe answers some of the toughest questions about coaching youth football. How can you get players to think of themselves as a team rather than an individual? What's it like trying to deal with parents? How can coaches become more proactive about concussion prevention? 

If you've been waiting for a podcast with a football coach, you've found it!

TeamSnap Podcast host, Emily Cohen, dreams of living in a world where kids can enjoy sports for the pleasure of a well-hit ball, a faster time, or a corner goal – one without helicopter parents managing their every move. As a youth sports blogger, she’s been honored to write for TeamSnap for over half a decade, and now she’s taking her wit and wisdom to the airwaves with her new podcast that tackles issues relating to youth sports.

As a Cal grad and long-time Bay Area resident, Emily Cohen knows a thing or two about sports. With two very active teenage athletes, she is well-versed in bleacher-sitting and the conduct of sports parents – the good, the bad, and the ugly. Some topics close to her heart include sideline etiquette, injury prevention, and good old-fashioned sportsmanship.

When she’s not on the tennis court, at a game, or managing her kids’ teams, she’s writing snappy marketing copy for technology companies, walking her dog, or learning to play the drums.
