Double Wing Football / Re: New positions for 2019???
« Last post by MHcoach on Today at 02:29:55 PM »
In January I took an OC job at a different HS in my county. It's a 25 mile drive each way. It has been a real challenge. We are switching from being a UBSW team to a spread team.

Anybody moving around for 2019???

Ended up with two jobs:  RBs Coach for Varsity & JV at Middle Creek High School, a 4A school in close-by Apex.  Also, Offensive Coordinator for the Durham Eagles Pop Warner team in not-so-close by Durham.

I didn't know the proper term, "shadow banned",  but I have had a lot of those posts also.

If no one comments, I will know I am shadow banned. 8)
Y'know thinking back its happened to me a lot. I'm just too stupid or could give to sheets to notice. You want to get noticed just ask how to make your team more aggresiive 2 games into the season, or ask what magic bullet offense will help your team.  :D

I wouldn't worry about it.  There's only about 7 people who bother posting anything anymore.
I have to wonder why it's even worth the bother to Mahonz/Clark/et al.

Thanks! I swore for a while I was being shadow banned because I would post and nobody would ever reply. Maybe it was just a quirk in the old site. Looking forward to jumping back in.

Dropped down from 6th to 3rd.

Coached my oldest son's group from 5/6u thru grade changes up until they all hit MS.  7 years with the same group.  Spent a few years helping the Middle School simultaneously.


Dropping to 3rd to take over my middle son's 3rd grade team.  They went 19-1 the past two years with my buddy coaching them, he's staying down with the 1st/2nd grade team again.  Should be a fun group.

Taking the best players from the new group as part of a split would not be a good message if it were my organization.

What message does it send?

I can't say that it would impact my decision. In my situation, I was basically named as the head coach of the B team, so that wouldn't bother me as much as it would some others. While we didn't beat the A team or the league championship team, we went 5-3 and won our division.

I certainly understand your situation, though. If your team went undefeated and you had a lot of big wins, you could probably get by with 35, depending on what the mandatory play rules are.

Regardless of how you organize the team, best of wishes this season!

Coach Terry

Thank you sir!

Ya don’t get me wrong. 35 kids isn’t ideal. Last year I had 28, & MPR was pretty difficult. That said I had 6 7 year olds playing on a 9u team.

I’d def be down for going A/B, I just don’t see how to do it w/o people freaking out. I can’t do it by age cuz my 2 best RB’s & starting MLB are all 9 at 10u this year. It would have to really just be a hand selected A team. But again, I just can’t see anyone stepping up to coach the the B team.

I've played a season with 34 and I've played a season with 15.

Wouldn't want to go in with any less than 18-19 honestly. 

34 is way too many, but the competition that year for PT was pretty stellar, lots of good ball players on that team.

I'd split A and B if you can.
