    Yeah, she said she "heard" and wasn't sure.....that is why the "not positive".   Sounds good, heard good things from a couple boys the other night at the fair.....looking forward to the season.

    HH,  Corydon Central, and Boonville participated in a V & JV 7vs7 this morning. A lot of good reps for all involved at HH who was an excellent host.

    The late Tom Goldsberry ran the conditioning program at Heritage Hills. Mundy took that role when Goldsberry retired after the 2001 season. Mundy knew his stuff and was a huge reason why Heritage Hills produced so many strong and agile players from 2000 until he left (around 2009?) to go teach for the US armed forces in Korea and now Bahrain.

    There are many socioeconomic factors that have changed in the area, as well. But I'm happy to see Heritage Hills is addressing the need for an experienced strength coach, who will likely benefit all athletes especially in track and football.

    I had the privilege of getting to know this man in a very short window. I really enjoyed his stories and passion for HH football. He had some great insites on motivation and strength training as well as thoughts on recruiting. Some days we just talked about fishing and his grandsons. Like him or leave him, you always knew where he stood. Fish'on Tom!

  3. Haven't read that one. I'll try and check it out. Also read one on the "dollar" package the Rams used vs the Cowboys to combat their shotgun spread stuff. 7 DBS, 4 DL. Very interesting...

    Great read. It is cool to see how some concepts simply just evolve from many years ago. I remember years ago, reading a biography about Vince Lombardi "When Pride Still Mattered" (a great read for any fan of the game). When he was one of the 7 blocks of granite on the Fordham offensive line, they ran an option offense using zone blocking schemes, and that was in the mid to late 1930's.

    There is a similar rule in high school, but it only applies if the communication for both teams is supplied by the host school/stadium. If each team has their own, then the rule does not apply.

    I'll keep that rule in mind when we make our first state finals appearance. Lol

    Was thinking more of opinions or discussion type debates from IHSAA vs actual rule implementation or enforcement. More so just how far technology has come and when it becomes an advantage for those that can afford it or choose to embrace it. 

    Really don't want to show up at a youth league game seeing coaches with headsets on. Lol

    I think you could.  Hudl assist is a service that is provided also.  In my opinion, the Hudl Sideline is a game changer.  Hudl assist is not so much.  It is something that can be done by any staff with a little hard work and has been done by staffs for years.  The technology has changed it a bit.  I see Hudl sideline giving a distinct advantage to those that have it verses the teams that don't.  I would say a team with equal footing(talent, coaching, numbers, etc.) The team with sideline will have an edge.

    Mainly talking Hudl sideline. NFL protocol, if one team loses communications, both teams are required to no longer use them until the other teams is fixed for competition fairness.

    Curious how this is viewed by the IHSAA? Plus tieing it in to percentage of Private/Parochial schools using advanced technology vs Public schools?

    I ask because we will not be funding this because of our 6 man staff have multiple side of the ball responsibilities across the board.  We usually have anywhere from 6-8, two way players most years.  

    What we do is I bring up a Middle School staff member and my Ipad.  He records the game on the Ipad as if we are gonna download it later.  He stands right next to me and if I or any of the 3 coaches on head set on the field want me to look at something I turn to him and get the clip cued up.   He has gotten pretty good at it going on year 4 I think and can show me right away what I was gonna be looking for anyways.   At the end of the night (but usually right before kick off of next game) I erase all those clips and start if over.  Gives us "replay" access right away on a limited basis for free.   

    What angle are you filming... LOS, behind the Off or Def, yours or opponent? Not sure I could see what I would want.

    Bout 3 or 4 yrs ago we experimented with 2 -Ipads. 1 for Off and 1 for Def. Filmed from pressbox, had freshman runners switching them out with sideline between series. Didn't always need to look, but did help at times.

    IF it happens, I think it would be best to let it come from an official source. I don't think we want to start running with rumors about 14-17 year olds.

    Cappy, I'm just messing with 32. My point why bring it up other than start rumours. Coach Schenk will do what's in the best interest of all his kids. That's why he was a wanted commodity. Wish all well. Until we scrimmage or play either.

  10. Our home stands are built in the hillside. The small strip of green grass next to the end of our stands is the perfect spot to work on leg drive and explosion from a 4 pt stance (bear crawl) up the hill finishing in an upright sprint past the light pole. Then walk around pole and back down. This is done in 2 or 3 man competition races. Mostly done as a part of a multi-station circuit in off season. Try to get 12-18 reps depending on skill guys or linemen in a 5 min period with 15-20 seconds between reps.Screenshot_2017-04-05-22-54-58-1-1.png.ee1892de0d82417fa0fa79993f1fb473.png
