The Top 7 Gifts for Football Coaches

Check out these fantastic gifts for the football coach in your life, and reward the effort they put into their teams all year.


While your football coach is planning games and plays, managing practices, and analyzing matchups, it’s easy for them to go all year without treating themselves. So, make it your mission to give them a memorable gift from our wide selection of footballs and accessories that include these eight perfect choices:


1. GST Game Football

The GST Game Football features an updated design, patented sewn-on stripes, and ACL composite pebbled laces. It is the official ball of 40 high school football state associations and more than 180 NCAA programs. Whether your giftee prefers light tan leather with a soft feel, or the traditional, firmer dark leather, this football delivers on the field, and the pebbled lacing provides 174% more grip in all weather conditions.

You may also choose a personalization option for your coach with one, two, or three text lines with up to 12 characters each. This football is of superior quality and is the most popular leather game ball in the U.S.



2. The Duke NFL Football

Take your coach to the pros by choosing The Duke NFL Football. Wilson has been manufacturing this classic game ball since 1941, and the football represents the longest ball and league brand partnership in history. These balls are handcrafted in Ada, Ohio, and, for the first time this season, they feature the NFL shield in red, blue, and silver. Exclusive 100 percent Horween leather makes up the cover, and the ball is Live-Enabled to give your coach access to exclusive NFL content, insider news, promotions, deals, and more, using the Wilson Live mobile app, available for download at the App Store or Google Play. Wilson can personalize this football with one, two, or three text lines with up to 12 characters each, making it a perfect individualized gift.



3. GST Prime Football

Wilson listened to players and engineered this best-selling GST Prime football with more grip points, a built-in prep gauge, and high-visibility accents. Like its Game counterpart, this ball features patented sewn-on stripes and ACL composite pebbled leather laces. It also sports an index finger and middle finger stitch that gives quarterbacks better feel and release. The GST Prime Football is handcrafted in the U.S. for unmatched quality and attention to detail.

4. The Duke NFL Football Metallic Edition

This collector’s edition football features a shiny metallic cover made from high-performance composite leather. Sized for high school and college football, it bears “The Duke” inscription and is perfect for commemorating special football occasions. The Duke NFL Football Metallic Edition is available in gold and silver.



5. 6-Ball Duffle Bag

Every coach needs to keep their equipment organized and clean, and the Wilson 6-Ball Duffle offers both of those in a well-designed bag. Coaches can transport six footballs in this Denier polyester bag that has a water-resistant bottom and EVA dividers. The bag’s fleece lining keeps footballs warm and dry, and the quality construction ensures that this bag will last season after season.


6. Football Prep Kit

Footballs need to stay in good condition, and the Football Prep Kit is a perfect gift for the coach who cares for their equipment. This kit contains a wax tack bar and brush to extend the life of the footballs, and the process both protects the leather and adds grippability on the field. These products are approved by the NFHS and the NCAA. Add our Football Prep Conditioner and Football Tack Spray for a complete kit.


7. Wilson 1914 Collection

 All things Wilson began in 1914 when the company started innovating superior sporting goods. As a nod to our history, we designed a collection of premium accessories for discerning sports enthusiasts.
