I certainly cannot say that all 11 of our guys fired off fast on our Silent Count.

What I CAN say that our offense as a whole fired out faster than the defense as a whole did.

But also remember we are 10U.

And we practiced it a ton, just about every practice in offensive group.

And it just seems like time better spent-along with going on first sound-than the time you spend on teaching kids to go on a multi-sound cadence and then trying to go on two or three.  I hate it when in the middle or at the end of a really good offensive group time or scrimmage, your kids jump on the no-play, or in Coach Angalton case when he would go on one, two or three, and then it seems to ruin the good scrimmage.  You end up doing up downs or whatever and it kills a good vibe.

Same in a game, except there is kills a good drive.

I know it not for everyone but is would be a fix I think for Coach Angalton.

Good grief, there's no way they jump if you're teaching it as a Sleep. ::)

True enough.  All you need is a regular cadence and a sleep play.

If you start off teach on three, silent or audible, you have more flexibility. Now most want nothing to do with that, and that is fine as well.

1) Normal Cadence
2) GO!
3) NO GO!

They are taught to break the huddle and get directly into their stance.  Play Call dictates blocking.  Listen for Audible.  First Call 

Rarely a false start made. 
Not MPP... ONE TASK!  Teach them!  :)

Our Center calls the cadence in our offense.

I actually tried this last night. I really liked it. Allowed our QB to focus on the running the play and the center is much louder than him.

Just want to say, " Thanks Coach Joe, I really appreciated your time. There are a lot of things I need to change and implement in my approach. I will keep working on myself asa Coach my team  needs.".
Thanks again

How does the center know if everybody is set. Does the qb tap him to let him know to begin?

The Colts had one of the guards watch the QB. When the QB signaled the guard, the guard would tap the center, and then the center was free to get things rolling.

I've noticed this with a bunch of teams lately. I assume its so the center can keep his eyes on the front and identify Mike. Any other reason they would be doing this?

Our Center just glanced to both sides before calling it out.  But our linemen knew to hustle to the line and be ready.  No issues with it.

Crowd noise was my assumption.

On Tuesday, we went to watch UCF practice in preparation for the bowl game. As a coach it's always a good thing to see how good teams run their practices. This was interesting to see the pace & the way practice is scripted. Of course we don't have 20 student managers to set up drills & organize things, but just how they arrange practice was interesting.

Everything, including which plays they will run when is scripted. The plays are signaled in directly off the script. Everyone reads the signals no words were used. Almost the entire playbook is RPO's, the exception being the 5 step game. There was no full contact & no going to the ground. That being said, it was still an extremely physical practice.

There no water breaks, instead bottles of water are constantly on the field. This is where having all the student mangers really helps.

The music was very loud & the HC had a remote when they needed it off .

Simply the manor they did things. It was live on the line, dead every where else. It was one of the things you had to witness. Anything to the ground involved bags.
