Honestly, I think some of the youth guys skip the youth talks. They can be very elementary sometimes.

I almost never go to the youth talks.

From what I've seen, the higher the level of the speaker, the more they seem to focus on fundamentals, the better they are at teaching, and the better they are at teaching about what they teach.

That's a major generalization, but when you have no idea how good the speaker is, I think it helps.

And yeah, some of the youth talks are very basic, but not in a focused-on-fundamentals-way.  More in a quick-overview way that often doesn't seem to give you much.  You can still learn something, but another room might be a lot better.

Does anyone know anything about glenn Harris? Are youth coaches allowed to go to all talks or just the youth ones? (Nike coy restricts youth).

I attended Glenn's Saturday afternoon sessions.  Really enjoyed them.  I will be installing the passing concepts he presented this spring.

I really like his approach to youth passing, and think that they're applicable in a wide range of offenses. In particular, I think that his flood passing and shallow cross concepts are great. I've installed flood every year for the past three years; it's become a passing staple for us.

I will hopefully make it for Saturdays session. Maybe Friday or Sunday but not both. It depends on who is presenting. If I go to Nike Orlando I may skip the Tampa Glazier. I do like the free part about Glazier as money to throw at football is limited. But my header is speaking at Nike as is Dave so I might be more inclined to go to Nike Orlando.

Gotcha Rob. I definitely want to make it to Nike COY, trying to convince some of the coaches in my org to go as well. I really want to hear Jeff and Dave speak. I'm going to go to Glazier the next week simply because its in my back yard.

Yeah, none of these are close for me. Orlando is an hour and a half. Tampa is almost 3. Jeff, surprisingly to some I assume, is speaking on spread. We are very basic from spread but it is VERY effective. I think a few coaches from our org will go to Nike. Not sure why they didn't go to Glazer.

Are you ever going to hit the Clinic Tours as a youth speaker?

You dont have to teach a single thing because the room would be roaring with laughter.  :D

I could maybe go for giving a talk or two, but I'm certainly not going to pursue it.

That could be a bad thing.

I saw a hs coach speak at a youth talk and sit there and tell us that kids can't handle more than a few plays and can't do this and can't do that all of which things we were doing. When asked how much youth experience he had he said zero.

Funny how guys who've never done it can still be an expert on it. lol

Agree.  I saw him in Charlotte a few years back.  I was very impressed with his information and clinic approach.

But it would be awesome to meet up with you and Joe on Friday.

Funny how when I was in Florida last year for DC's clinic, that all of these Florida guys were suddenly out-of-town.  Hmmm...
