A Message from Troy Vincent Sr. on National Coaches Day

Dear Coaches,

As we celebrate National Coaches Day across America, the NFL wants you to know that your commitment and dedication to the game and to developing the next generation is greatly appreciated. Your influence on the character and leadership development of young athletes is invaluable. Thank you for not only teaching athletic excellence, but also the values that the game delivers.

As you continue your work, we hope you take advantage of the resources available through the NFL Way to Play educational series. The NFL Way to Play, which focuses on teaching coaches and players proper playing technique across all levels of football, was created by working closely with NFL Legends coaching at all levels of the game.

Here are resources you can tap into:

  • Way to Play Playbook – A downloadable PDF that covers the five shields of the game: Posture, Space & Speed, Drill Selection, Language, and Best Practices
  • Play Football Video Gallery & YouTube channel – Home to all our educational videos
  • Virtual Way To Play Clinic – A virtual clinic for youth and high school football coaches on the NFL Way to Play hosted by NFL Legend LeCharles Bentley and Glazier Clinics
  • Virtual Workout Series – A four-week program with video trainings for ages 14 and up that can be done anywhere at home and without much equipment
