You got me- we hired a bunch of "little people"

hahahaha I KNEW IT!

I keep reviewing portions of the DVD's and I see where I'm making mistakes.  One thing I need to remember is to keep the groups small.  I think it forces kids to the forefront more, where they can't "hide" among the crowd.  Having 30 kids and trying to explain blocking or anything for that matter is going to be more chaotic than having them broken down into 3-4 groups of 8.

We're having fun with it and I'm pretty confident we've got a kid that can put some distance on that ball when it meets his foot.  Hopefully we'll never have to use a quick kick, but I'd like to have that one ready for game 1 just in case.

If you show up for a fair fight, you are unprepared.

What exactly is a quick kick?

What exactly is a quick kick?
A kick from a formation usually used for other plays.  It's "quick" in the sense of appearing sudden because the other team doesn't expect it.

If you look closely, it's not necessarily exactly the same as the formation used for other plays; the punter may have cheated back to get more room.  Also, a quick kick may be literally quick compared to a punt from a regular punt formation that allows the punter to take a longer approach.

being undeclared.  The offense takes the field in normal fashion and it appears that you're going to run another play and a punt comes out of the backfield.

Blocked one just this weekend and returned it for a td. If your opponent is getting penetration on you normally don't run this.

Our opponent tried one punt last weekend. I thought it was a play from shotgun and we stayed in our 33 look. Our DT came unblocked and almost caught the kick in his arm pit. Just to re-enforce what Rob just said. We were in their backfield all game long.

Somehow I don't think you are going to surprise anybody by quick-kicking from your own 20 on 4th and 15?  Perhaps on 3rd and 15, maybe..but most D's would be ready on 4th for some trick play.

The hope is that we never have to use it... We should never be at a disadvantage where we would have to use it. At this level kicking, punting, or any other attempt to move the ball other than a run and every so often a pass play just doesn't happen. We would be the first mighty might team in at least 2 seasons pull this one out... I didn't see anyone punt last year... At all. So to be on our 20 on fourth down the other team is going to expect a big play attempt but not a kick...... Hopefully :)
