Thanks Coach those words early in season really gave me the strength to get thru a 1-3 start. Not only did it do that it also let me have some fun with some things that are i've added to Hybrid Wing that have really made up for our lack speed and athleticism. When you aint got HORSES YOU TRY ANYTHING LOL !!!!! At least i have  :) :) :)

Angalton , And trust me i keep saying to myself on my ride to practice best season yet and you were write this team has grown on me and the crazy part is they look like a team and walk different now. This is the smallest group  #'s wise i ever coached and were not talented but yet there tough as shit and dont back down and try even when there severly out matched. Were finishing with 20 started with 27 those 7 clearly didnt want to make commitment and weeded themselves off i never run kids off. Its been the biggest learning expierence i've ever had and loving every minute of this ride however it end up !

Ended the season on a high note winning 39-12 to make it 4 in a row and finish 5-3 on season . Got the 2nd seed and will face The Middletown Blue Dragons who we beat 3 weeks ago 35-31 . They have a HR Hitter at QB and we don't have no 1 person as good but i got a plan for that. There a multiple offense type team, that keeps the ball in his hands at all times with a big TE and decent RB they compliment him with . Will be an interesting WK of preperation as we've settled in on Defense. Offensively were avg 35 ppg during this 4 game run so we will concentrate on making sure adjustments that are clear and have a couple wrinkles i ain't show them 1st time around. It's gonna be a War these cities border eachother and share big families that reside on both sides atmosphere will be electric .....

I knew you would get them turned around. We have went the complete opposite as your team. We started out the season winning pretty easily even with low scores. Now we can't score to save our lives and we probably have the best collection of talent in the league. It is really frustrating and I am trying to stay positive. We should be undefeated but right now we are the 6th and final seed in the play offs and will have an uphill climb instead of having a first round bye.

It's the time of season i live for WIN OR GO HOME . Almost don't cut it there is no tomorrow. Everthing i went thru this year boils down to next 5 hours lets see how far we come from 1-7 in 2017 to a chance to play in the BIG DANCE NEXT WEEK. I never no with this team we can hang 40 on them if we come out firing or we can be in a dog fight the next 5 hours will tell....

Well we made a run and got brought back down to reality Sunday Night as our season came to an end in State Title game . Had a very fun year turning this nightmare around and looking forward to messing with little guys at 9u next year.

9u is the most frustrating and rewarding age group you can coach. Just remember, they take everything you say literally. If you tell them to do something, they will do literally that, no interpretation.

Good should be an easy transition then lol. Haven't COACHED THIS AGE SINCE 02-03. Honestly i'm looking forward to it already put a staff together been watching my up and comers for months as i made sure i was visable so parents were aware of who i was and at same time have an idea of what lies ahead . These days of me being a hitman for hire are over and im a build this from ground up only way to compete with the all star teams out here that are basically regional teams . So we will do same starting from 9 as we already got a core just need to fill in holes.
