Football Basics

Click here to listen to Scott's FOOTBALL BASICS audio episode

Look at you, Fancy Pants Reader, you found the first secret audio episode. In this episode, you can hear me explain a high-level overview of football -- positions, scoring, and the line of scrimmage. Just enough to let you enjoy the rest of THE ROOKIE. For more detailed information, you can check out the links below:


  • National Football League's Guide to Football Basics (all text)
  • FOOTBALL FOR DUMMIES by Howie Long (see link at right) is a great, easy-to-read overview.
  • MADDEN NFL - if you're a gamer and you want to learn about football, just get Madden and enjoy. You will learn a ton! (see the link at right).
