Yul Brenner Quote "So it is written. so it shall be done!"

This is my last season as Header.  We finished at 5-2.

We enter the playoffs against the only 2 teams that beat us.  I like our chances in the first round because we just didnt play well against them.  Too tentative. Too unorganized. Too much failure to execute!   

This season I turned it over to them.  I made sure they realized that any failure to execute or improvisation  was on them.  They are 13 and 14 years old.  Yes you can put pressure on them to do what you ask! 

Case in point Saturday, we dominated the first quarter.  ZERO offensive plays by our Opponent!  Yet we were still short of the goal line!  Second quarter was the opposite.  We couldnt get out of our own way!  0-0 at half.   

Half time Speech.  Tell me how you can go from "All In Domination"  to "I maybe in" in 8 Minutes (High School Clock)?  They stared at the ground! Late 3rd quarter Opponent scores, all heads hanging!  3rd-4th Quarter break.  Me.  "Do ya give up?" all eyes staring at the ground, no answer!  This isnt my team, its yours! You guys decide and let me know!  I just call the plays we know work!  Not one said a thing!  I refused to punt all night long, regardless! 4th and forever. GO! Make it happen! 

Method to my madness!  Kids realized I wasnt going to "Bail Them Out"!  Earn it or not! 

We scored, and got the 2 point conversion with under 3 minutes left!  We stopped them on 4th down after the ensuing kick off with 1:04 minutes left.  Took 3 knees and went home!  I was Boo'ed by some of the opponents!

Ya know what?  I DGAF!  8-6 is ugly, but fine with me!  The kids earned it! 

BOOO  8)

Last Practice (Scrimmage) before our 1st playoff game.

Me.  Very Loudly  "GET YOUR HEADS IN IT OR GO HOME!" 

Afterwords 5-7 plays were called by the QB because I refused to accept their efforts, regardless!

Sloppy turned into Right!  Amazing!   ;)

I got booed once for using up the entire play clock while taking knees too.  Parents yelling at me to snap the ball while we just sit there waiting for the ref to start the 5 second count down... Never under estimate the power of stupidity.

Every time I go and idiot-proof something, some asshole comes along and builds a better idiot.
Beware the fury of a patient man.
