we have to stop a juggernaut
« on: September 25, 2013, 08:19:46 AM »
This week we have to defend the top back in the league and the top offense in the league (including last year)- number one scoring team- they of course run the double wing.   Their top back made us look silly last year including a 95 yard td run on a counter xx play with 5 seconds left in the first half. Hes scary good.

We have a game plan, the approach is multiple and the kids have to do it....or we will be in big trouble.

Will be working on defense all day today.

My top back and linebacekr most likely will not play friday night. hes still nursing a high ankle sprain. The next best athlete at linebacker is about  to be plugged into the starting lineup....got to get on the same page as everyone else with game plan (missing practice time due to a shoulder injury) and sure enough, moments after I tell him that im going to start him friday he tells me he will miss practice today (film and further game planning) - so, as it goes, the struggles to get this kid on the field continue. the ability is there, the understanding of our schemes and his responsibilities is not.

Missing Practice, how does that happen. We have a hard & fast rule you miss practice, you miss the game. There are no exceptions. It's hard enough to get everything done in short time we have, we just can't have a player miss.

Good Luck! Squeeze the air out of the ball, & I'm sure you guys will be fine.

clearly, if a kid misses a practice we cant count on him.  the kid has a history of coming up short with expectations, his playing time reflects it accurately. hed shown some growth this week adn now will miss for an appointment. 

it hurts us because the replacements are much slower 5.9 vs 5.1

Interesting, one article said even though we lost that we had the largest rise on max preps national rankings. funny how those things go.

we are ranked 114 in the state and play 32...the last team we faced was 34, ....I know we have to play perfect or this one will get away from us early, these guys are terrific.

we are ranked 22/38 in our class. Rocky Hill is ranked 6th in our class.   I like the underdog status.

We pretty much fly under the radar, we had no real ranking to speak before the season started. Now everyone is jumping on the band wagon. The rankings really don't matter. Here in FL, every team we face is loaded.

We are in the really tough stretch of our schedule. We play 3 district teams in a row, our next 2 games are huge rivial games. You can throw the records out the window for these games.

That's the thing a football isn't round, it will always bounce strange. That's why it's so easy to compare our game to life. It really is a work ethic sport.

We are lucky that the next 2 rivial games are home, but in the big picture we just have to strap up button our chin straps & go to work. I circled these 2 weeks on the calander in Jan., hopefully the ball will bounce our way.

Tell your team, this is why you play, for games like Friday. Make sure they don't lose sight of the focus, yet still have fun. That is a big thing for me, other wise the 6 am's & all the work you have done gets lost in the shuffle. Year 2 is very different then last year, now you guys need a signature win. Go & get it, let nothing stop you!

We started out ranked 167 in the state & over 1200 in the country. Currently we are 41 in the state & 480 nationally. That's in Max Preps, I sent you the link.

AP has us at 10 in 8A, The Sentinel has us at 6 locally, & BHN has us 11 in the area. We were not ranked in any of those pre season. All the rankings in the world don't help unless we win.

Here's the local papers article about our last game, I already posted the Sentinel's article in the results thread.

So, having heavily scouted these guys:

Left wing is a stud, right tightend is a stud.

Left side pullers really smash and grind and pancake defenders (they are a double wing team).

Id say that are  very well coached, dont turn the ball over, are tough and blue collar. They have all of the tools in the tool box including jets and rockets. They can block down and kickout or reach hard. They have play action, drop backs, screen game.

They are, in short, a handful.

We battled hard and hung in there for a half. Too many mistakes. First half ended with one of our drives fizzling inside the twenty as time ran out. we were trailing at the half 28-14 as we gave up two first half td passes, the very things we worked so hard against all week, we let their star te behind us in cover three  and we allowed a crossing route to beat us in man.

The star rb they had stole the show rushing 14 times for 184 yards, completely dominating the game in the second half scoring the games final four tds. He scored one when we had our jvs on the field for the final 3 minutes on an electifying run with about ten kids having a chance to hit him, not one kid could touch him.

we rushed for 336 yards with a ton of damage coming on wedge. we didnt trap well, we didnt pass well.   we had some issues with that number 88 at defensive end. Good team , they have a shot to win the state class S title.  they have some players but dont appear to have much depth.  Good fight but in the end, we got rolled as we had no answer for their speed and strength.  we went up and down the field with fumbles and sacks and time ending drives.  The final was 49-14.
