  1. I don't understand why these coaches can't see the difference in kids. All kids are different and that must be taken into account when "matching them up." I am disheartened because one bad experience can cause a kid to quit. Football is a game and games are suppose to be fun. If it isn't fun, why would you play. This particular incident and drill are not fun especially for younger kids!
  2. While jogging this morning I thought about another factor... Many young guys think they know it all, and don’t want to or are unwilling to learn how to coach and adapt to their players. I remember designing a play and the OC said this won’t work, and explained coverages to me. Being a former lineman understood blocking concepts but had little understanding of coverages. Greatest coaching conversation I had.
  3. This is a fascinating topic! I absolutely believe there is a shortage of coaches out there. I have been coaching for 10 years. When I started, I had no kids just a girlfriend. I went from jv/varsity football straight into junior high basketball and back to varsity track. Now, I have a wife and 2 kids and only coach football. The number of guys you see come and go is crazy. From the first staff (8 total coaches) I ever worked on only 1 of those guys is still coaching. None of which retired from teaching yet. My personal experience with schools hiring practices is mixed. When I was
  4. I think the main thing the coaches want, is if the QB is out of the pocket let him throw it passed the LOS and no intentional grounding.
  5. Numerous players on our team have been hit by “close contact” quarantine about 4-5 times this season. (Not to mention the regular injuries.) We have had a cancelled game and opponent changes as late as Wednesday, so this has been a difficult year. Please keep in mind no matter what we are going through, we have an impact on these kids. The tweet below has been the a bright spot for us this season.
  6. I heard an ESPN analyst say he would welcome NCAA football making the permanent move to the spring. That way you could see football year round. There are obvious questions with this. Will the number 1 pick (or top guys) play in the spring? However from the school perspective it should be a no brainer! Play Friday nights, Saturdays and Sundays. The tv revenue for the schools would skyrocket so no programs would have to be cut. If high school were still in the fall it would allow coaches to watch more players in person. It is an interesting thought and I would love it, but I
  7. HS English position open also. Apply sooner rather than later.😀
  8. Coach Leitzman is a great coach and the Springs Valley players are saddened to see him go. We know he will be successful in the future. I don’t coach basketball but I knew we could always chat about the game anytime. For those interested in the head coaching position, we have teaching openings in Social Studies and PE/Health. If you have any or all of these licenses check out the posting on the IDOE site.
  9. I remember playing at Hanover College and losing on average 12 lbs each practice. I was a d-lineman and sweat a lot, but still players have to consume a lot of water!
  10. With the school year winding down, I am checking to see if there are any confirmed boys basketball coaching changes? Hopefully we will have sports in 2020-2021!
  11. 2001 South 4A Semi-State Jasper vs. Cathedral Jasper was down 21-7 with about 10 minutes to go and came back to win 27-21 in regulation. Cathedral had fumbles on back to back possessions then had a 3 and out to give us a chance.
  12. You never know what a district’s policies are. Maybe wanted too but couldn’t. Maybe he was MS coach. If you have information please tell us. Reckless is bad.
  13. Congratulations to Coach Scott Buening who was named AD at Southridge. It looks like he will continue to be the program’s football coach. https://www.14news.com/2020/03/20/buening-named-athletic-director-southridge/
