Boys pulled off a win over the only other undefeated team in our league to move to 6-0. Now at 17 straight w/ this group.

Moving to unlimited has really made things a lot more challenging. We were a small in team in weighted football, now we’re REALLY small. We’re facing 200+ lb kids & our biggest player 135. Think we have 3-4 guys that weigh over a 100. Can legitimately say in this last game our opponent was bigger, stronger, and faster. And yet we still won 21-0. Pretty rare you can get the W over a quality well coached team when they’re bigger, stronger, faster. W/o our starting QB & DE no less.

Seems like every year we establish a big of a new identity. This year we’ve becoming more of a power team (ironic due to our lack of size). Some years we’re a buck sweep team. Some a belly team. Last year we became a veer team. This year we’re power. We’re so deep into the Wing T manual i’m seriously considering adding a 2nd wrist coach for our QB.

I know a lot of guys scoff at the idea of a robust playbook. But when you’re as small as we are, I really think you have to have all the answers. Teams watch our game film & I can’t imagine how they can possibly prepare their 10 year old defenses for us.

Anyhow, great start to our year. Repeating as D1 champs is gonna be tough. But we’re definitely in the hunt and have a good shot at it.

It's all about having fun.  But losing aint fun!

Blah, blah, blah....I told you.  Doesn't matter that you're smaller.  Doesn't matter that they're bigger.  You've either figured it out, or you're in the process of figuring it out.  Regardless, you're running the table.  Not surprised.  This is already old news.  Seriously Jake, you're doing a great job.  But I doubt that anyone here is really surprised.

About the time you become a power team, I go and coach a team that's never heard of the play.

Back to back undefeated regular seasons. Now it’s time to get the D1 title back to back!

Highlight of the game was we finally executed the “Hidden Handoff” “Wrap Around Draw” whatever you want to call it. We call it Sucker. Watch the defense and you’ll see why.

#24 switches the ball to the correct arm when he breaks out of the backfield.  Nice.

It’s tricky. Here’s another angle: http://www.hudl.com/v/2CAWNk

Basically the back is trying to make an “O” w/ his right arm. His right palm should be facing up, outside of fingers pressed against his hip. His left goes in front of the “O” so the QB can push it in their firmly, & the backs left hand stops the ball from pushing out.

We use counter blocking. Everyone GDB playside, BSG pulls & kicks, BSTE pulls & wraps (he forgot to pull in the video).

We had the balls, just couldn’t figure out how to get it to work. Now we got 2 legit QB’s that can pull it off. Never miss the handoff in practice.

Oh, I had the kids who could've run that.  There were a couple of years where I had the QB and FB goofing around with it, just kind of a hey, try this to see if it could be done.  Yup, absolutely could have done it, they were getting it at about 75% speed after just 2-3 reps.

I just never had the balls to actually install it.
