Spring 2019 KYA FB Season
« on: February 08, 2019, 04:54:43 PM »
Wow, Spring football is here in Keller, Texas just North of Fort Worth, Texas in the DFW metroplex.  Our last combine / try out is tomorrow and the player draft is next Saturday.  Practices start 2/18 on my wife's birthday, what a great gift for her.  :)

We ended the Fall season on a down note. Our star running back / middle linebacker broke his leg on the first play of the Super Bowl and we limped through the game and lost handily.  We never were in it after he was carried off the field. I find losing a star player in youth football is really tough especially when our roster was only 13 by the time the Super Bowl game.  We had a great season at 7 and 2 but I hate losing to the same team twice in a season.  Overall a wonderful season though. 

Since we had such a great Fall season we froze the maximum six players to come back to our Spring team but we found out the stud running back is not cleared to play football until the Fall.  This will hurt us a ton in the draft but hopefully we will find a few diamonds left for us by the time we pick 11-16 in the 6th round. 

I will be calling the Offense this season and I am going to try to run plays from my upcoming playbook the Wildcat Muilt Spread Offense; a Running Spread Offensive Playbook for Youth Football. We have a passing QB that is taking private QB lessons and Wes Welker type receiver that is crazy good coming back.  Our draft strategy is all about running wide and passing.  We want hands players, quick footed linemen and smart overall players.  I am a little worried getting out of my Beast comfort zone but its time to try a few new tricks.  I have a new formation which I call Squad which is similar to a Loensome Polecat which I am excited to try out.  Looked good the other day in shorts practice. 

We did run a few Spread plays from the new playbook last season which you can see here.

I have also been working on gap split strategies. I've found a few books from the 40's and 50' s that have some interesting rules around max and min gaps.  Pretty cool stuff really.  Mahonz and Gumby said they work so I've been researching it a bit.  My season test out a bit.

I hope everyone had a good Winter break. I am ready for some football.
