About the Book

“Coach’s Playbook” is an accumulation of 35 years of coaching experience. In addition, it contains chapters on philosophy, teamwork, motivation, overcoming adversity, advice, faith and more. Coach Larkin also chronicles the time spent at three high schools where he was the head football coach, along with the ups and downs that come with high school sports. Starting with a modest upbringing in a small town in Michigan, to a Hall of Fame career, it will give you insight to leadership strategies developed through years of experience. It’s the true story of a man who loved football, family, the players he coached and the satisfaction of preparing those young men for the real world through the sport of football. This is an excellent playbook for coaching and for life.
