The book's 70 drills are divided into four sections:
• Defensive Line drills
• Linebacker drills
• Defensive Back drills

Developed in cooperation with the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA)—the leading football coaching organization with more than 8,000 members—this book features drills and insights from many of the country's best college and high school defensive coaches.
AFCA's Defensive Football Drills develops the fundamental skills every defender needs to compete in today's game—an aggressive style of play and an understanding of complex defensive strategies.
