schemes aren't that big a deal, as long as they are sound, you understand them and can make each player understand em.  that's the thing.  if it is a sound scheme, make sure each player knows what to do on every play.  in order to explain that, you must really understand the overall concept.  simple simple, keep it simple.

That was the problem, nothing was simple with this guy.    This system appears to be sound so we can just concentrate on a few rules for each position, and technique.      I think it is one of the HS's defenses, so it is good in that respect, but may not make the most of our available talent.    Our org views this JR high league as a developmental league for HS so the header force fits a lot of the HS stuff.   Which is fine IMO.

That is perfectly fine if that what the org has bought into. Does the hs staff come around at all? If not, then I don't know how much I would buy into the whole feeder program.

The HS guys come to practice here and there before school start.    On offense they run a spread speed option, so at the youth level they try and develop a dual treat QB  stuff like that.. it's not a perfect set up, but whatever, I'm not going to fight city hall, I hate getting caught up in politics, I'm about kids developing skills and having fun.

coach it sounds like you are making progress.  like I said if the scheme isn't ideal, that's ok, as long as your staff is on one page and is trying to present it clearly to your boys.

I laugh when guys say scheme doesn't matter. You might not be running the ideal scheme but at least it's something. Running no scheme turns into a total charlie foxtrot, two monkeys with a football type thing. If scheme didn't matter we would have no schemes but we have hundreds if not more. Ideally you choose the one that fits your situation the best but if you have no choice something is better than nothing. Two monkeys with a football is what you had two days ago.

The Reed GAM is basically just everybody lines up in a gap and shoots it or bear crawls it and all eligible receivers/backs are "mirrored" and manned up.

Simplest defense there is.   I don't like it except for maybe a goal line D, but it's better than having no clue I guess.
