We only got one good one off against Gumby. Their D did a great job taking it away.

@troy That play was the inspiration for me going back to DW. I've watched #7 run that play since 7th grade and it's very familiar to me. A kid who has run so many Power plays that he knows exactly where to go. I was able to watch Mahonz' grandson online playing RB in Wisconsin. They run mainly I and some spread, but you can tell by the running style that this is a kid who has run Beast Blast thousands of times. I coached him 1 season in 2nd grade. He played 3rd, 4th and 5th in CO before moving to WI where he played 6th, 7th and 8th in the Single Wing.  His senior year, he was Offensive Player of the Year and 1st team All Conference. 

Mahonz and I have a few other kids who learned to run the ball in Beast. They have now graduated, but you could tell watching them play HS where they learned to run.

When in doot . . . glass and oot.

On the plays to the sidesaddle QB's back side, I think he'd be more effective pivoting first step on his upfield (left) foot.

@bob-goodman like a spin rather than a drop step?

Yes.  He'll get there faster and even have a slightly better kick-out angle.

In fact, for just about everything I can think of you'd want a sidesaddle QB to do, you'd want him moving his downfield (backfield) foot first.  I think if you look at the YouTubes of Fleming-Neon HS varsity using sidesaddle T, to the extent you can see any of the footwork, it's like that.
