Is she comfortable with the idea? Would you care if it was a girl putting their hands on her chest?

I've not discussed it with her yet....I'd be uncomfortable with ANYONE putting their hands on her chest.

DC Wing T Offense / Re: Trips plays

In this instance yes the TE knows that hes not to run by unblocked guy and to give his back a little time by staying with the DE longer than a chip.

DC Wing T Offense / Re: Trips plays

Ok, after running several screens to the left side, and seeing some defenses adjust, including the even DE trying to stop it, I installed Trips 28 Pitch Freeze on 1.

The Trips side DE has been getting hit repeatedly by the 2 back on the other Trips plays, so now he knows he can't get to the QB, might as well try to cheat to the screen and take less of a hit/block.  The QB reverse pivots and pitches it to the 2 back running flat across, with the TE & WB blocking on the play side.  The pitch has to be practiced because the 2 back is running towards the QB and the ball is getting thrown straight at him.  Gotta soften it up a little.

Also we now run all Trips in mini.

What about the play side DE?  Put the TE on him and run "Trips, Freeze, 28 Rocket"?

I had a girl play center in a 9 YO division. She was also my MLB. She was tough.

I had one parent question me about the center thing, to which I told him he was a little sick to think that way. Her parents were completely OK and didn't want her treated any differently.
When the parent that questioned the hands under center thing asked me about it I asked him if he wanted her to play cheerleader as most likely the hands of the male cheerleaders would be in the same locations when she was elevated,  and no one has a problem with that.
He shut up

I told my son I hated playing against little guys because they always got in my feet. He's a littler guy at the moment and has really figured that out these last few weeks and is wreaking havoc on people now. Planning to tuck this away to actually teach it if I get the opportunity.

I've been struggling with this in my head recently as my daughter has expressed interest in playing....I did not even get to QB/C issue, my first thought is people teach hand blocking around here, and that means drills where people put their hands on her chest....

As a coach (a really new coach) I find it easy to say whoever plays we treat them the same....as a Dad I'm not so sure.
