Football for Players and Coaches - Glenn Scobey Warner - Athletic Director Carlisle Indian School 1912 - CarlisleFirst Edition Pre-dating Bear Bryant and Bobby Bowden, Glenn Scobey ‘Pop’ Warner had the most wins of any coach in major college football history (319–106–32). Warner was the innovator behind the single-wing formation, a precursor to the modern spread and shotgun formations.

The plan of teaching football by mail was suggested to me several years ago by the fact that there seemed to be no means available by which a student of the game could obtain instruction except by putting himself under the supervision of professional coaches upon the field of play . . . The course has not been prepared for the general public but is strictly a text book for players and for those whose business or pleasure it may be to instruct players and teams.‘ – From the preface.

  Glenn Scobey Warner (1871-1954), most commonly known as Pop Warner, was an American football player and coach. He served as the head coach at the University of Georgia (1895–1896), Iowa State University (1895–1899), Cornell University (1897–1898, 1904–1906), the Carlisle Indian Industrial School (1899–1903, 1907–1914), the University of Pittsburgh (1915–1923), Stanford University (1924–1932), and Temple University (1933–1938), compiling a career college football record of 319–106–32.

Pre-dating Bear Bryant and Bobby Bowden, Pop Warner had the most wins of any coach in major college football history. Warner was the innovator behind the single-wing formation, a precursor to the modern spread and shotgun formations. According to Warner biographer Francis Powers, "In the late '20s and early '30s...football was flooded with coaches who learned their football from either Pop or Knute Rockne".

Warner coached four teams to national championships: in 1915, 1916, and 1918 with Pittsburgh and in 1926 with Stanford. He was inducted as a coach into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1951. Warner also contributed to a junior football program that became known as Pop Warner Little Scholars, a popular youth American football organisation.
