No. Crickets...lol. Which is too bad, because that would have been my number one choice.

I have a Hummer, a Ford E150 van and a Chevy Suburban.  Any idea what that would cost me per week?  ;)

Good luck.  Not just on an offer, but on a true fit.

Just got an email from the header.  He wants to film our board time.  Interesting.

So Coach W and I met with him for 2.5 hours.  He had several of his staff in attendance.  I believe he had four of his ACs there.  We talked a bit about coaching philosophy and background and then dove into the Double Wing.  We went over the blocking schemes we teach (Wedge, Trap, Iso, Gap, Reach, Hinge and Down) as well as the core plays and the process for teaching them.  They asked questions about what they saw and we answered them.  I told them that being in the school, nor receiving a stipend was a consideration for myself or Coach W.  I said I was looking to be a header and was looking for the JV position and that Coach W was looking for a Varsity or JV OC position.  He said that he would speak with his staff and be in touch with me.  Regardless of whether we are offered, they were a good group to spend time with and talk some Double Wing football.

They had TWO full size football practice fields with goal posts at both ends.  And an awesome hill.  Made me tear up.  ;)
