Yes,  but what’s the enrollment?

3,180 according to a site I found. They are in the largest classification in the state.

Send me a screen shot. I don't see them. I did delete posts from a user named "Brandon". The IP was from Thailand and the account was clearly a 'bot'.

Just run a DS dead T.

You can pull right?

Then take one of the backs and just have them as a wing or Unbalanced DS DW pull guard

I tried pistol out of my wing T and it just didn't give the response I wanted.

Check Jacks stuff from up around you. Jack is awesome and I am sure he's ran into the 8 man bobblehead stuff

What I don't get is how does running teach one to block? What did he hope to accomplish? Make the 7 kids who did come to practice, not want to come back to practice?

I think you start with the premise that lack of blocking can only be caused by lack of wanting to block.

I'm really familiar with both this coach and #31.

#31 played for me a few seasons ago.   His family was frustrated with his role on my team so they went and played for another team where he received exactly the minimum number of plays.  He got a championship hoodie out of the deal though so I'm sure he's happy.  Last season his mother called and asked, halfway through the season, if he could come back and play for us since he wasn't getting to play for his championship team.  That was a no-go.

He should be going to HS with my son (just saw him at continuation yesterday) but optioned to another local HS because they are "better at football". I doubt he'll get much playing time. 

His behavior in your game doesn't surprise me much.

He also did quite a bit of headslapping in our first game. On one, we were running in a PAT. Instead of tackling the RB, he head slapped him as he went into the end zone. On another, he head slapped our QB after a hand off. Our QB retaliated and got an unsportmanlike. I know we're not supposed to dislike kids, but man, I dislike that kid.

The format of the book is similar to the coach of the year books where they are a collection of different clinic speakers. The chapters don’t necessarily build directly off of each other. I’m asking here because the chapter content would be more geared or applicable to individuals here in many ways.

Can you run power with two wings and just have the playside wing become the kickout block?  That still allows you to run counter to that wing. Or use two wings and have the QB toss earlier and become the kickout block?  Or have your QB be the power runner?  Two wings...motion one all the way across as the kickout block.  That would setup a nice power pass as well.  I think.  I don't know.  I sucked at coaching football.

I’ve been asked to write a chapter for a book. Below are the details.

The book is about a spread offense and to a degree a specific spread offense.
The chapter is supposed to cover running the spread in your feeder program/lower level (MS/Frosh)
The chapter is supposed to be 5 pages.

What would you want to see in a chapter?
What type of things do you feel would make the chapter standout or be successful?
What do you think should be avoided in the chapter?

Why not ask those who asked you to write the chapter?

Here in Florida they sometimes have 100 just on the Freshman team.

Yes,  but what’s the enrollment?
