Jamboree for my 8U teams...
Today, my two 8U teams took the field.
The first team did just about everything perfectly. The first play from scrimmage was a 70-yard TD on a sweep out of the Double Wing. After that we ran 16 Beast Tank for 12 consecutive plays. We scored with :01 left. On defense, we faced a spread team and ran the Killer Bee. We pitched a shutout.
The second team was not quite as successful. The safeties were a touch slow getting to the RB's and the other team scored 4 times in 10 minutes. Had it not been the Jamboree, I'm sure two of them would have come back because it looked like the CFL (they had three guys in motion). This team will be installing the IO defense on Monday (been bugging Coach Patrick about it all weekend). Offensively, this team did pretty well though, marching 70 yards down the field before we ran out of time. This team ran mostly 16 Power out of the UBSW.
All in all it was a fun first week. Both teams play twice next week, so I'll be chiming in soon.
Hope you're all having a great season!
