 In AYF special teams do not as a play for MMP's. We used an interesting deep kick that was very effective. We placed the ball on a hash, & had our kicker kick deep between the numbers & the sideline. We put our 4 best & fastest player inside the hash, the next 2 were chasers  & the last 4 played contain.

Very effective & simple coverage.

100% agree. I decided to forgo kicking extra points last season after we had mauled teams the season before scoring on almost all our non-kicking extra points (1 vs 2 points like your league) We lost two games because the teams we played kicked extra points for 2 and we couldn’t do it. Coaching mistakes. We will kick extra points every time next year.

Do you have onside/deep kick and return setups you wish to share ?

General Discussion / Used Youth Equipment
« Last post by zhamilton4 on Yesterday at 07:49:58 PM »
I am currently looking for any used youth equipment that any one is looking to part with. I am in my first year with this organization and we have no equipment of our own. I am looking for anything that is in good condition and you are willing to get rid of at a decent price as we don't have a ton of money ether. Anything would help thank you in advance.

I think you really have to learn Special Teams the same as O or D. Then you have to be able to teach it. I am lucky I was a long snapper so I can teach that. I have learned how to cover kicks & block for punts & PATs. The one area I don't mess with is the Kickers. I just let them kick.

In love or not, the problems you describe are classic mistakes. I have been fortunate to coach a lot of dominate teams over my career, so I know exactly the issue you describe. There has to be a balance to everything you do. When we started being dominate it was always on defense, when the offense caught up & we began scoring in high numbers we learned how to coach such teams.

The other thing I learned a long time ago was it was never about our opponents but about us. Winning by 50 never meant we played well, only that opponent was bad. We always coached accordingly. Correcting bad play is coaching, allowing bad play to go on because your opponent is bad is not coaching.

Starting with 2nd graders is starting all over, I wish you guys luck. Mahonz daughter is another issue, I am sure it will be fine.

Mahonz always calls me a football geek and reminds me that I am not like most coaches. I believe you are in the same position. It isn't a bad thing, simply you see things from a different prospective than other coaches. Often this limits the men you can coach with. My old OLine Coach from MH often told me I spoiled him. He tried coaching with someone else & lasted 1 week. He has never coached again. I have told PSL the same thing, his old HC is a great coach, now he has problems coaching with average coaches.

So the answer is now that you understand what it really takes you have to make sure you work with coaches who can learn.

Joe,

Something changed with our HC/OC starting last Fall. Mahonz says it's because he's in love. I'm dubious, but then again, I don't really care. We have a plan going forward. All good. The new focus will be winning the heart and mind of Mahonz daughter, who is no stranger to football, but is absolutely terrified for her baby.

I am looking into Krossover as well.  Going to check out the free Film Room that they offer.  Looks like it is easily shareable for exchanging film.   The real question will come down to the software, and what you can do while editing film.
