Pete Shinnick, University of West Florida said, “This is an extremely valuable book for coaches.”X&O Labs recently published its latest study, The Player Driven Culture System: A Study of the Six Behaviors That Create and Sustain Player-Ownership of Football Programs. This book reveals the 6 behaviors football coaches must teach their athletes to infuse accountability and ownership of performance in any football program. Sean Lewis, head coach at Kent State, recently stated, “Every time I sat down to read this study, I was amazed with the depth of information and knowledge that is in there.” Dub Maddox who serves as the offensive coordinator at Jenks High School said, “I’ve read a ton of books on culture, but The Player Driven Culture System is a very unique resource. It’s the first resource on culture that pulls from every level of football.” X&O Labs spent 12 months studying the culture over 40 programs like North Carolina, Navy, LSU, Cincinnati, Arizona State, Iowa, Wake Forest, Florida State and many others at every level of the game.
