Steve Alford is probably best know as Mr. Indiana and as being an All American and NCAA Division I Champion during his Indiana University days, playing for the famous coach, Bobby Knight. They won a Division I NCAA Championship together. Steve is considered one of the elite Division I head coaches today. Steve's father was instrumental in Steve's development, being a great basketball coach himself. What impresses me the most about Steve is how he adapted to his father's influence, with the All American Work Out they created, and Steve's publishing of books and shooting videos before he even turned 20 years old. Steve's classic, the original All American Work Out, is a priceless video and he demonstrated there how to train to be an All America scorer in basketball. The All American work out is similar to John Wooden's Make Five Free Throws In A Row, Keep Shooting. Both of these shooting drills, emphasize incorporating the free throw in between shooting drills as necessary in developing the ability to make game time free throws. Steve Alfords's All American Work Out is the most important video in basketball, in my mind, to develop scoring skills. Part II demonstrated a higher form of drills and intensity necessary to be competitive in todays NCAA. Thank you again Steve for this advancement.
