Staff clinic
« on: July 17, 2015, 12:43:16 PM »
I did a staff clinic yesterday for a middle school coach in the area looking to run the 10.

I went in with a can of Copenhagen a To go cup and that's it.

At first they were puzzled...I'm not kidding this defense is the Lil kept secret even though it shouldn't be ...bc it's soo simple.

Anyway...what I learned.

Don't think of "26", straight 10, or special. Instead think how can I make my base personel (3-4 in this case) fit the old 10.

First thing fill the 6 interior gaps with down players.

After you figure that out you are set. Because guess what the other 5 do? They cover...Holy cap haha

Of the 3-4...they put the down 3 in gaps, 1 olb, 1 mlb, 1 safety.

Now the cover guys are mike...fs...and 2 corners

That's it then we small talked game plans.

The 10 taught them more how to match up on defense and create mismatches on defense and also helped them stay simple.

Hope yall enjoyed

So the strong side olb...free safety...cornerS and mike were decided on as the cover team.

You typically wanna single high vs pass threat soon if they come out with 3 wr's near Los they drop the safety out of a gap and put tem deep or on #2. They were simply gonna play nickel 5.

No...

We teach man and match zone same time...it's contact but it's a rather easy install.

We only zone vs closed sets.

When they spread we play man and bring pressures. If the team is a full time spread team we game plan and practice what we will do all week...so zone if we don't match up well...man if we do.

We are not full time 10...we use it situationally

When I first started doing clinics back in 2004- I did a lot of scheme stuff

Over time I found it was much more effective for the audience to learn more about HOW we fundamentally taught- the process of teaching. Then how we taught our position groups fundamental skills during indys.  Then how we taught our groups in group and then how we installed as a team.

Its been my experience that the scheme fanatics are rarely the guys who consistently win- so I focused on process and fundamentals- effective and efficient teaching and installs.

When I do clinics- the least successful coaches are the ones that want me to jump ahead and get into the minutia of the xs and os of scheme.

However beautiful the strategy, you should occasionally look at the results.
