Pep Talk from The Czar (2-1-13): “What Commitment Means to Me”
Good morning, I’m going to be starting this season as the head coach for the first time. I’ve been an assistant coach for about 10 years now and I finally have been given a chance to be a leader. Yet I find myself as if I’ve never coached a game in my life. Smh I guess its nerves. I have a 2 part question? The first one question is I really want to do something different this season, kind of changes things up. I will be coaching the 7th grade team and I wanted to install the T formation old school offense. Do you think with this age group that it would be a productive offense??? I was watching your part 1 video on the T formation. Is there a part 2? My second question is my defense…… I’m torn between a 5-3 6-4-Bear or 6-2 please help…..
Thanks for reaching out coach! Congrats on becoming a Head Coach! The T-formation is great for that age group. It keeps it simple and also does a great job of minimizing the QB throwing the ball or having to read coverages on the fly. As for defense, I would say the 50 front works well. You don’t want to get overly creative with that age group; just drive home the fundamentals and keep it basic but try to install a new wrinkle every week depending on the opponent. I hope this helps.
