Reminds me of the skip pass my HS coach put in.  QB would open to throw a quick screen out the the WR but we would skip the ball off the grass to him, like skipping a rock across a pond, backwards so it wasn't an incomplete pass.  WR would snatch it, turn and look to launch a deep one to a TE or someone sneaking behind the defense.  You had to put on the split second acting job of it being an incomplete pass.

Yeah, well the Flap Jack rules!

We have found success in our red 18 stretch and blue 17 stretch. In Cox power pistol he has a wing in those formations. I have him wide at 12 yards or as a wide out. We turned it into an RPO. Our fullback logs emlos, HB blocks any man outside of the FB block and pulling guard pulls past HB and continues on LOS until he here's "go". Go indicates the QB is keeping it. The wide out runs a 12 yard fade, if corner follows he turns and blocks. QB reads the corner to either keep or pass. If CB splits the difference, QB goes with first instinct. So out of these formations we run Blast off tackle, Trap, Wedge, Stretch, and Gap. Gap is an off tackle counter to FB and wedge is a direct snap to FB.

Blue

                            X x x x x x X
           X
                                   X
                                       X

                                       X

Stretch has same rules, but no one leaves free blocking zone. Rules GOB or Down to Backer(wash). Jet is first man play side and no pullers, really just a toss sweep. This is also ran out of this formation.

The greatest accomplishment is not in never failing, but in rising again after you fail.

Oh, I forgot to include our weekly trick play. You guys probably know it as magic boot, we call it Meatball. We run it off our version of DW power.

Unfortunately our QB didnt quite have the arm strength rolling left to hit it in stride. But, they still executed it nonetheless.

Nice. That PTS team has some real SIZE. Good win for you guys.

At my current org they know me but it looks like there will be a change in leadership next season so I might not have a spot to coach at with them at all. If my org from last year regroups and fields teams next year, I have a decent shot at a header spot but there is no knowing if they will field teams next year or not.
The local PW team by my house is pretty solid org but there is no chance for me to be a header there. I don't know anyone there and I have never coached for them so I am definitely an outsider.
That leaves 2 PW orgs near where my kid's mom lives. 1 is a perennial contender and there is at least 1 member on here who coaches for them. I was a HC with them back in 2010 and I had an interview for a HC spot 3 seasons ago but I didn't get it I was an AC for the Unlimited team that year. We were outgunned and undermanned but I really enjoyed coaching that group of young men. If my son played there, he would require a waiver. Then there is the team for where my son is zoned, if you go by his school and that Org is a perennial losing program but I heard this year was a good year for them so maybe they turned the corner? Also didn't hurt my last org folded and I am sure that is where a lot of the kids ended up. I almost coached for the PW team last year but they took the HC spot away from the guy I was going to coach with so I left and followed him.
I would love a HC spot or at least coach for a header who shares similar philosophies as me. I don't care the age or location.

I haven't had a chance to see them play. I assumed that with all those kids and coaches from WBR, they'd still be running the DW.

Let me know about the time. I don't see SCL giving anyone home field advantage though. They host EVERY year. Lol.

You're making this out to be much harder and more complicated than it really is.

a) Move to NC.
b) Bring your little nipper.
c) Bring the ex.

Coach on my staff.  Put your son on the middle school team.  Volunteer as an AC with the middle school.  Rent out a spare room to your ex.  Don't understand why guys don't see the forest for the trees.  ::)

Honestly, if I told her I wanted to move to NC, she would. She really wants to move up there. Her dad lives in NC and she said she plans on moving up there after our daughter graduates. My biggest issue would be finding a job and a house. I would have to sell my house to move as I have a VA loan and can't rent my house out if I move.

It was the ol BLOCK SOMEBODY scheme. Their O-line just stayed on the LOS. Never huddled. had no idea what play was being run.

Were 8-0. SCL is 7-0-1. But because of our stupid point system, we go in as the 4 seed. lol. Our ORG is hosting & were still on the road despite being the only 8-0 team. Gotta love it.

Ill let you know for sure tho.

I was really hoping you guys made it to Disney this year. I would love to get a chance to see you guys in person. We have some really good MM teams in this area and I want to see how you would match up with them.

My biggest issue would be finding a job and a house.

There are houses for sale in North Carolina.  As a matter of fact, Coach W is a realtor.  As for a job, I have no idea what you do.  But I see people in North Carolina working all the time, so I assume it's something that can be done here.

Ya, its an invite bowl game. Im not flying out there for that.

As far as how wed match up? I think wed do well vs Florida D2. D1 wed get smashed. We just have too many MPR issues. If we could bring our best 19,  we might stand a chance. Problem is our star RBs are 8. Our M & Will are 8 & 7. Wed prob stuggle vs all 9 y/o teams.

These kids even at 8 are the best in the bay area. Next year theyll stay down w/ my O-line coach & just absolutely murder everyone. I mean, these kids staying down is gonna be so unfare.

Ill move up & really have to fight for every win depending on how recruting goes. The following year is the year where I think Florida will be on the table. Most of the team will come back together & well have 2 years of recruting to add to it. Plus 2 years of kids running our system at a really high level.

Omigosh.  Oh my gosh!  Really?  Wow.  ???  North Carolina, particularly eastern North Carolina is really the singular, only place in the world that understands barbecue properly.  Anywhere else, and they're thinking that pouring ketchup (or some other abomination on pork) makes it suddenly become barbecue.  Let me correct those who are so naive.  Pouring anything (ketchup, sauce, water, Tang) on pork (or chicken) does not suddenly make it "barbecue."  Real barbecue isn't helped by some sort of artificial aidReal barbecue is what happens in the preparation and cooking of the meat.  Brian, your IQ just went up 10 points by reading this.  You're welcome.

We call that the HIM blocking scheme. Lol. You block HIM, Joey's got HIM, and Jimmy's got HIM. That's just lazy coaching. Must not be the same staff from 2016 WBR then. They ran a nice tight DW.

I hate the point system. It's supposed to create more competitive brackets, I guess. I haven't seen it.

IF I were a betting man, I'd bet that you'd be playing SCL in SCL. I could be wrong tho.
