Cryptoquote Puzzle

Coach

Ready, set, let's go -- and give that brain a workout. Solving a cryptoquote can actually help you stay mentally sharp. And, solving word puzzles is FUN!

Our quotation puzzles will exercise your brain and entertain you in two ways. First you'll decode the encrypted letters. Secondly, you'll uncover an interesting witticism, spoken by someone with whom you're familiar.

You'll find other sets of encrypted quotations on this site. The pearls of wisdom are only loosely organized into themes. On this page, for instance, the quotes aren't about sports at all. But one of them is from a famous coach.
