A Course in Football for Players and Coaches — Glenn S. “Pop” Warner (1912).
Written while the coach at Carlisle Indian School, this book by legendary coach Pop Warner, is a treasure of early American football. Warner developed the use of shoulder and thigh pads, the screen pass and the singe and double-wing formations. While at Carlisle, Warner coached the great Jim Thorpe. In an oddity of the era, Warner served as head coach for two teams simultaneously during three different seasons. Today Warner’s name is most associated with the youth football leagues that he started.
This book was the property of Michigan State University legend, Lyman Frimodig and shows his signature inside the front cover. Frimodig was the first MSU athlete to receive 10 varsity letters. He later served as the boys head basketball coach, organized the first Michigan high school basketball tournament and was the mayor of East Lansing.
