First game
« on: September 02, 2018, 09:48:37 PM »
First game after being away two years.  I've missed it :). I am assisting were ever needed.  Mostly working with offensive backs/line.  We are running the double wing and wishbone and have a spread offense serries.    Defense is 4-4.  We have a total of 24 players and all kids played at least 8 plays.

We won 14-0. We had 15, minutes of rain before game. Everything was wet.

We had 4 touchdowns returned do to holding. All pentalties happened with players that didn't make every practice :(
We did turn over the ball twice one interception and one fumble.  :(.  But our defense hung tuff and dominated.  The defense recovered 4, fumbles to give us the ball back. I

Defense never gave up a first down.  We looked like killer bees.  We had 3 to 5 players at every tackle.  We knew our opponent played the wedge. Our defense broke it up the first try and they never attempted it again. We taught our defense line to bear crawl through it.  Our opponent got 3 yards  that play). 

Picture included was our second string offense making a big hole up the middle.

Have to say have a great group of coach's we are all working together and all are on the field for the kids. 

Been two years sence I've been back and wanted to give a shout out to Dave Potter you helped allot with my situation 2 years ago.
