One Back Clinic Notes

Below I have copied and pasted my notes form last weekend’s trip down to the One Back Clinic.

Overall it was a great experience with some great speakers and I highly recommend attending next year.

RPO, streak, air raid vertical – Timmy Chang

Streak vs 6 call

Streak is an RnS backside concept 

Get vertical if they’re not backing off

He squats get deep. If we can’t get deep we hook it 

If safety gets outside of us, widen him  back inside (post)

Wr has to SET the defender

SET means foot, head, shoulder at defenders leverage then go other way

QB starts the throwing motion on the WRs set… so he isn’t waiting 

Outside WR read corner 

If he hitches work back down own stem

Vs cover 2 has to attack aiming 2 yards outside the corners leverage

Uses quick game concept frontside (smash, fade out)

Reading safety alignment to know coverage 

Depth… at or under 10 its cover 0

Width… outside hash cover 2, on hash probably 4

Back shoulder fade coaching point

DB in dominant position, throw the ball at the back of his head, he will never see it 

AIR RAID 6 call

Simplicity and spacing 

Lock one seam, one can bend 

Outsides have option to sit down if corner is bailing 

RPO

RSO/RPO

Run screen option now and bubble screens

Run pass option 

If you block BS DE you can throw the ball RPO

If you leave BSDE unblocked, can only RSO or you’re gonna get QB drilled

RSO screen frontside 

RPO backside , reading OLB

Slants is simple, common use backside 

Boot Camp

I wanted to share with all of you, something new we started doing that I think is THE BEST thing we have ever done.

I was inspired by Coach Randy Jackson’s book Culture Defeats Strategy – Book Review Here.
We are doing a week long boot camp for the players this week.
JV and varsity alternate between weight room and field

On field we haven’t done any actual football, it has been all competitive drills.

It has been a blast, and the kids are working harder than I have ever seen.  We are starting to have some leaders emerge. kids are cheering each other on, and finally starting to celebrate each other’s success.

We are by no means perfect, but I  see it starting to bring everyone together.

It is probably the best change we have made… some special moments this week and we are starting to separate the men from the boys… the winners from the excuse makers.

Here are some examples of things we have done this week.

Here is a break down of what our week looks like.
