The conclusions drawn by analyzing statistics from college and professional football often do not translate to the high school game because the games are so different. This book puts those powerful statistical techniques for maximizing a team's chance of winning into the hands of high school coaches and fans. These techniques are illustrated using the Pulaski Academy Bruins as a case study. Techniques such as Expected Point Value and Points Per Possession analysis are demonstrated with examples. The authors explore the utility of onside kicks, 4th down decision making, and two point conversion attempts. In addition, the book touches on the aspects of game theory as it relates to the opponents psychological state.

This book is the result of a convergence of several events in our lives and several ideas that are circulating throughout professional athletics at the current time. The most accurate starting event for the journey that led to this book is the acceptance of Adam on the football coaching staff at Pulaski Academy in Little Rock, Arkansas. Shortly after Adam starting coaching there, I was given the responsibility for the verification and validation (V&V) of a massively parallel Advanced Simulation & Computing (ASC) computer program. Adam was learning to coach football under Kevin Kelley (a pioneer in implementing the statistician’s dream for the way football should be played) while I was gathering the statistical and analytic skills required to evaluate how well really sophisticated computer models match the world around us....
