Since today marks my return to coaching youth football, I thought I'd drag out a couple of vids that emphasize why we take the approach that we take.

In this video, you can see why we stress the takeway.  Because if you teach it, you can get the football back.  Our opponents had generally 3-8 times as more turnovers as we did.  In this video, watch for the turnovers:

In this video, don't watch the lead tackler or the impact of the hit, but the pursuit.  Watch for the number of defenders we have at their ball-carrier.

And this video, which is a dedication to one of the most exciting players I ever coached.  I coached him in youth ball and in high school.  #20.  Shot and killed on Christmas Eve, 2016.  Rest in Peace, little brother.  You are missed:

Looks much like the team I coached...oh wait, I mean we looked very comparable to you.  ;D

If you show up for a fair fight, you are unprepared.

Steve, I can barely deal with the North Carolina cold.  BTW, we’re spending Christmas in Palm Springs.  Hopefully, we’ve sold the other houses by then and can stay in Cali.  It reaches more than 100 degrees in the summer there!  🙂

How you manage your practices. How you're going to train ACs that maybe just got assigned to you and have no clue about your system and methods.

So I had the meeting with the AD and the AP.  Pretty easy, simple and straight forward.  I told them what we do.  I gave them a copy of our CAL Program (which they looked at while asking questions).  I gave them a copy of my references as well as a copy of my coaching resume.  They said a decision would be reached by the beginning of next week.

After I left the meeting, I sent a text to the high school header who had set this up.  He asked me if I was interested.  I told him I was.  He told me to keep updating him and that he would get the skinny from the AD.  Kind of nice to have someone get involved on your behalf.  I will remember it and it won't go unappreciated.  So we'll see...

Was this for a youth position or another high school?
