Glenn Scobey ""Pop"" Warner (1871-1954) stands among the giants of the coaching profession, alongside Knute Rockne, Amos Alonzo Stagg, George Halas and Vince Lombardi. Warner turned a ragtag team from a Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Indian boarding school at into a national power and later won multiple national championships at the University of Pittsburgh and Stanford. His 319 victories made him the winningest coach in college football history.

A pioneer of the forward pass, he is credited with the invention of the single-wing formation - widely considered the genesis of modern-day offense - as well as the double wing, the three-point stance for backs, the naked bootleg and the spiral punt. He also developed improvements to shoulder pads, tackling dummies, blocking sleds and much more. This career retrospective traces Warner's rise from his small town roots to become one of the most influential coaches in football, who helped refine the sport from a tedious, push-and-shove affair into the dynamic, high-speed game of today.
