And the excuse often given is that their coaches had to “dumb down” whatever the blocking scheme should be, so that it is no longer a scheme

The ironic part is that if they did "dumb it down", it frees up time to do more things. I simplified my scheme after learning about how Coach Gregory and Coach Cox do things. Since even the backups know who to block, I've been able to install more plays this year.

Thanks so much.   Just me typing it out has helped solidify the concepts in my mind.   3-5-3 is popular in my area so we do see it, but we’ll be ready.

let me guess... the question was around the corners alignment?

last week i had a dad chattering all game. finally loudly i told him him he could coach defense as i walked toward the sideline. again i told him to go out and coach while I watch. he shut the F up after that.
i would have let him coach D if he would have said yes.

Your Game Results / 8u Patriots

We played our first game yesterday and won 14-0.

I was really pleased with the effort because we played without our starting center. While we have two backup centers, both were too nervous and had trouble with the shotgun snap. As a result, we went away from the Single Wing and ran Beast with the QB under center. We ran mostly power and wedge for most of the afternoon. Seemed like we had the ball for the entire second quarter.

The defense also played pretty well. While some of the parents questioned some of the alignments in the Killer Bee (one even confronted me about it at halftime), it got the job done. I think they picked up six first downs.

Next week is the big test... we play two of the better teams on Thursday and Saturday, respectively.

Here's another idea:

...................C.......B.......C2
..........E.......V.V.V.....V..V..V6..E2
.............O......O.O.0.O.O.O
...........................O
...........................O
.....................O..........O

TE blocks C1.
FB kicks out V1.
RHB runs ball between V1 and C1.

Where are the V1 and C1?  On the sidelines?

Yes.  You have to rep blocking stacks.  WB does bend the rule.  You need a blocker on both hats.   That's why you have to rep it.  But, if you're facing stacked LB's you'll face them every down, not just once in awhile.  Does some team play stacks on your schedule?
