#1 Defense
« on: November 08, 2016, 04:52:58 PM »
Its been a little over a year but I'm back. Took last year off from coaching but came back to coach my 8 year old nephew. The last 3 years I have coached I have ran the 63 defense. It has been one of the top 2 each year. Now after a year off and back this season running this defense and DC single wing offense we are the #1 seed, and the only undefeated at 7 & 0 with the play offs starting.  With 7 and 8 year olds our team has giving up an average of 6 ppg and putting up a average of 27 ppg. Coaches see us line up in this defense, the gap call 90% of the time and think they can beat it. Not!!!  Love it and it is the best youth defense I have ever run in my 11 years of coaching. I will let you all know how the playoffs turn out in a few weeks. Thanks for all your help and input through the years.

Well Season over and the Summerville Sertoma Bantam league Raiders are Undefeated Champs. We had a bye week and then won our 1st playoff game 20-0 but the championship was a little different. We bet the Cowboys in the regular season faunally 27-7. They were the #2 seed and we were #1. They came to play in the Championship. For the first time all season we trailed in the game 6-0 from there opening drive. After a few drives our self and a stop on defense we were up 13-6 at the half. We got ball to start the second half went down and scored, now its 20-6. On there next drive, (oh shit) the jet sweep out of shot gun and they haven't run it all season. 1st play touch down. long story short they started killing us with the jet. Its all my fault because I had not got our defense ready for that, and at 7/8 year olds didn't think any teams would run it much less run it as well as they did. Anyway with them killing us with the jet and a on sides kick recovered by them late it was close but we where able to run out the clock on offense and won 27-24. Wow what a game. Both teams played there butts off and I could not be prouder of our team. Hope you all have a great season as well and again thanks to all you have done to help me out. Special thanks to Mr. Jack Gregory for your material and instruction about this defense. Now in the future I just need to make sure my guys know how to defend the jet and put in any adjustments needed for it, lol.
