That's Good News!

The main determinant was that I wanted to continue to coach with Coach Williams.  I could have gone back to my old youth org where they said I could be a header, but I wasnít really looking for that due to the Pop Warner paper chase.  And since Iíve been away from that org for so long, I didnít want to have to ďconvinceĒ a coaching staff on the merits of the Double Wing.  So this allows me the luxury of no paper work, the continued enjoyment of running the Double Wing without pushback, and an opportunity to continue working with a coach that I am in lock-step with in terms of scheme and coaching philosophy.  Thatís really all there was to it.

9-12s.  Iíve coached that age group before for 5 years (1 as an AC and 4 as a header, but I havenít coached that age group since 2006.

The Killer Bee is what I would run. I ran it with 8u and we averaged less than 6 points a game given up all season.

DC Wing T Offense / Re: DCWT BEAST
« Last post by chiefs58 on Today at 09:26:31 AM »
Did you guys ever figure out how we are running this out of the DCWT? Is there an addition to the manual.  Iím just looking for what our positions transfer over to the Beast and basic plays to help me teach it to me assistants and my team a little easier using the rules already in DCWT

Whats up fellas. Long time no post for me.

So after many years w/ the Jr. High boys, iím moving down to coach my youngest sons team (7,8,9). Iím pretty excited for the new challenge. Itís been a long time since I coached this level, so I expect an adjustment period on my part.

On offense weíll be running our tried & true Wing T, but our base will be w/ a double tight unbalanced w/ a nasty split on both ends. Weíll feature the Down series.

Defensively itís tricky. Canít cover the center, no blitzing, everyone on the LOS has to have their hand in the ground. Canít have more than 6 players on the LOS. No minimum, but anyone off the LOS has to be 3 yards back & canít attack until the ball carrier is coming at them.

Curious if any if you have dealt w/ this and have suggestions? Also wondering how spill & kill works at this level? That was our strategy w/ the older boys in our 4-2-5, but iím not as sold on 9 year olds being able to cover the same amount of ground. I realize itís relative, but at this age I feel like at this age the ball carriers are usually ahead of the defenders.

62 with hard corners will be tough vs the run.

I should read Mitts book.

Just lots of really interesting stuff about how they attacked all the many problems and handled finances and such.

The stuff about "activating" Olympic sponsorships and how John Hancock benefited from their sponsorships and such was pretty interesting.
