I have some film on it from a clinic he put on for us, I haven't review it to see if the audio is very good however; and wouldn't feel comfortable sharing it without his blessing.

You do?  And now you let everyone know that you could share this, if only you had my permission?  Wow.  Nothing like a little pressure...lol

Can I see the vid?  I'd like to see/hear the teaching points I offered.

i hope it's shareable.

we always used the calande version-shoulder to butt cheek.  we had great success, it became the backbone of the offense.  but i'm always up for new ways of doing things.

out of curiousity, do you you worry about setting up a wedge out of unbalanced because you aren't getting equal push from both sides?  we did have this problem.  we would wedge out of right formation, so two players to the left of center, and we had 4 fitting in to his right.  the wedge did tend to move slightly left/diagonal down field.

You shouldn't apex on the snapper in unbalanced exactly because of that. Apex on the guard. Guard fires out a little further and the center steps in. Recessing a little less can help get that straight.

I'll admit that this is the sort of thing I was looking for when I requested info.  If he has permission, I'd happily pay you for a video clinic on it...  Maybe you could record something for coachesclinic.com?

Well if you're close by, I could come to one of your practices.  Or you can come to one of mine.

We leave Texas on the 6th should arrive there on the 7th I will be setting up and tuning racecars till the late on the 8th, then on the 12th we will be at the Thursday night Panther/Eagle game (Wife panther fan Tyler is Eagle fan) and we may leave out on Friday some time.

So I may have some time the ninth through the 11th. My wife does want to hit the Carolina coast one day in there.

Wedge is awesome

That's gonna be tough.  You'll be tied up through Sunday and we have practice on Mon.-Wed. and play on Thursday.  Unless you're gonna hit the coast sometime Mon-Wed and do a drive-by.  If you lived in North Carolina, all this would be easier.

If you moved here, you wouldn't even need my phone number.

Wedge is my favorite play.

We're on the field from 3:30-5:45.  If you come by, we'll install the wedge.

Which is my favorite play.
