|Split Back Veer Football Offense Option Game
Robert McAdams has carved out a niche writing about
contrarian-style football offenses, and his book The Split Back
Veer Football Offense is another shining example of his work.
He tracks the offense from its earliest days all the way through its
current applications. Coach McAdams also breaks down some of
the subtle nuances and variations of this time-tested offense into a
usable framework. The book is filled with description and
diagrams that make this book invaluable to coaches interested in
installing the split back veer offense.
John Sterner: Head Coach, Muskego HS, WI
I just finished looking through your book and was impressed with
how you presented the information. Not only is the Split Back
Veer offense not used much but, those who do use it are very
picky on how we do things. I thought you did an excellent job of
proving the validity of the offense, and it will be a good starting
point for anyone interested in the Split Back Attack. Thanks for
letting me review a copy, and I will talk to you soon.
Stan Luttrell: Head Coach, Chestatee HS, GA
I own all of your football books. I really enjoy them because they
are loaded with useful information. I like how you give insights
into the origins of your topics. I constantly refer to the books
throughout the year. My favorites are the "Advanced Concepts",
"The Split Back Veer", and the "Gap Man Pressure" titles.
I've been a football coach for 22 years in Nebraska, 14 of them
as a head coach. What I like most about Coach McAdams'
philosophy to football is his analytical aspect of the game. I've
never seen someone research more before publishing a book. It's
not just theory, it's practical, proven successful experience. He is
selling you something you can use tomorrow to turn your
program around. His books are worth several times more than he
charges. Try one of his books... You'll buy all of them, I know I
did. Thanks Coach McAdams.

I read/studied your split veer offensive book, and I really got a
great deal out of it. I liked the detail. I have a few questions I
would like to ask as we install this offense, if you do not mind.
Dave Carroll: Clear Fork High School
I enjoyed the book very much. It is one of the very few pure
resources on the split back veer out there. It is written from a
coaches perspective. It is written for coaches who have a strong
base of knowledge about offensive football. As a career long
option coach, I liked how the scope of the book was very
focused. It paid the proper amount of respect to the fact that
option coaches simply do not have the time to have a wide array
of plays. We spend time finding ways to run our few option
plays against whatever we see. Your book has that balance. I
learned some different ways to do things we already do, which is
what I look for in a coaching book. Good work!
Will Fields: Head Football Coach, Bath County HS, VA
First of all I'd like to say WOW. Your book on the split back
veer was so in depth. It was the best money I've ever spent
toward football. I'm the head football coach at Eureka High
School. We ran the double wing this year and had minimal
success because of coaching and being extremely out-manned. I
want to switch to split back veer now. Anyway, thank you so
much for writing this, and I hope there might be a time when I
can see you and pick your brain even further.

I started reviewing teams who were successful with players who
were smart but did not have a lot of size and great speed. I read
some information on Concord De LaSalle’s team. Bob Ladoucer
had the same issues when he took over that program. He said he
had put in the split back veer. I had some personnel history of
this offense due to it was the same offense my HS ran in Georgia.
I began investigating this offense and that is how I ran into your
book on the split back veer. I only had a month to install the
system before our season started and had to groom the right
personnel for the positions. As usual, at my level, blocking is
everything. I had a QB and several backs that were quick and
intelligent, which helped. I had to spend a lot of detailed time with
the line. To make a long story short, we went 9 and 1 with the
loss in the second round of the playoffs, which went three
overtimes. Your manual on the split back veer was instrumental
on our team having a successful year.
