Reviews - Allen Cone

"This little 32-page book is aimed at youth players aged 9 to 12. Capstone Press bought out "Play Football Like a Pro" in 2010 under the "Sports Illustrated Kids" series label. Attractive graphics-rich layouts walk the young footballer through how to take a clean snap, how to complete a pass and how to hang onto the ball. For example, "How to Run Routes" clearly color-codes how to run the post, the out, a curl, the slant and fly routes. Fans of the Steelers, Bears, Redskins, Saints and other teams will find crisp photos of their favorite players used to illustrate concepts." -

Series Made Simple; School Library Journal - Blair Christolon

"This series hones in on specifics beyond the basics, such as how to slide in baseball or how to shoot three-pointers in basketball. Each book includes advice from professional coaches and athletes. Attractive photographs are placed next to the skills that are described in the narrative. However, that uniformity of photographs gives the books a rigid block-and-text appearance. Still, the books will encourage beginners to try one of these new tips or techniques." - Series Made Simple; School Library Journal

Booklist - Susan Dove Lempke

"Top 10 Sports Series. Much of the appeal of this series is in how it details specific actions young players can take to fine-tune their skills. Each title offers advice, in both words and photos, regarding how to do, say, a “ladder sprint” in basketball or effectively stop a soccer goal." - Booklist
