Franklin Football Coach Authors Book
In a recent tweet, FHS Coach Eian Bain wrote, "First attempt at writing a football coaching book for new and aspiring coaches. I think there is something in it for everyone. Available on Amazon. Creating Your Passing Game: How to lay the foundation of an elite passing attack."
Indeed, according to the product description on Amazon.com, "Creating Your Passing Game is about the building of an offensive passing attack from the ground up. We start by creating a common language for interpreting defenses. The book progresses to look at the fundamental parts of the passing game that can make throwing the football successful. We finally get into the foundations of each passing concept and how they are intended to defeat certain defenses. There are many visuals and diagrams, but also a detailed explanation on how each concept is utilized and maximized. This is the perfect read for any coach trying to establish their passing game or elevate their current offense the next level."
Last October, Eian Bain was named New England Patriots High School Coach of the Week.
At that point, Bain was in his sixth year as head coach of the Franklin High School football team, The Patriots web site noted that he led the Panthers to their first victory over the Mansfield Hornets since 2009 to improve to a perfect 4-0 record on the season.
For the first time ever, they noted, Franklin ranked in the High School Football America Massachusetts Top 10, powered by NFL Play Football. The Panthers currently sit at number 10 in the rankings while Mansfield, previously ranked number seven, fell out of the top 10. With wins over Wachusett (37-21), Brockton (37-7), Duxbury (27-14) and now Mansfield (28-10), Coach Bain and the Franklin Panthers have proven many doubters wrong.
Patriots, College, and Pro Football Hall of Fame linebacker Andre Tippett, now the team's Executive Director of Community Affairs, met with the Franklin captains and coaching staff in connection with the award to present the football program with a $1,000 donation on behalf of the Patriots Foundation in honor of Coach Bain.
Bain's book is available at Amazon in both hardcopy and electronic versions.
