Part 2 of Game Planning - The thoughts on why...


Before you read Part 2,

Click Here for Part One





So what is the magic number of plays per game?

I can't answer that 100% certain however I think it's  somewhere probably between 36-48

Much like Coach said, the hope is you can run base down plays twice.

With the average number of plays being 65 per game, we try not to take more 48 calls into a game.

How does our plan start out?

22 plays from approximately seven formations MAX.

Find your formation and play advantage and build from there, be able to have answer calls..

For example
Zone Read
Split Zone
Zone RPO
Bootleg

the latter 3 answer the defense reaction to Zone Read.

We like to have 6 RedZone and Goal line special plays. 3 inside the 5 and 3 for when the defense changes into Red Zone Defense. Some it's at the 25 and others it's at the 13.

12 unique third calls,  3rd and 3 or less, 3rd and 4-7, 3rd and 8-10, 3rd and 11+

3 Coming Out Plays

3 Screens/Shot Plays

We may add a trick play into the game plan as well.

This allows us to practice each play multiple times a week before Friday.

Need to know how this works? Best Video you can watch on Practice and Game Planning BELOW!

4 most asked questions about the Spread - ANSWERED!

In this article I will attempt to answer the 4 most asked questions I get about what we do in our offense.


Question 1: On twitter you have talked a lot lately about 12p quickly becoming your favorite personnel package why is that?

12p cleans up the box for your Quarterback and allows RPO's to become 1 on 1 games between wide receivers and cornerbacks. Those are the match-ups we are looking for.

We used two 12p RPO's heavy last year. I want to talk about the one that was apart of my one-word calls!





With 7 lineman you force the defense to put 8 in the box if they intend to stop the run. 8 in the box means that our pre-snap slant or out becomes open and if not we can read our post snap glance. Of course because we want to run the ball we are hoping that the defense decides that 7 defenders is enough in the box.

Question 2: Teams are doing a better good of playing zone stick from 10p how have you adjusted to keep this play working in your offense?

As I answered in Question 1, 12p made the box clearer for us. Here is video of us running Zone-Stick from 12p


If 12p is hard for you to get into, but 11p or 20p isn't then here is one of my favorite ways especially vs 3-4 and 4-2-5 quarters defenses.

Question 3: How are you controlling tempo in your Spread Offense?

1 WORD CALLS!

I tell people all the time, my offense is a No Huddle Offense, that doesn't mean we always go fast. It means we don't huddle.

If we want to increase the tempo at will, this is where the use of one word calls come into play....

Example

Call: Broom
Play: Jet sweep toss to the Boundary
Called: when ball is on the hash closet to our sideline

Question 4: How do you game plan the Red Zone?

Whew. I just updated a new article on Red Zone play.

1 tip I will give about the Red Zone is this.

It's Ok to use a RedZone package....

Here is my favorite a single wing formation I got from Rick Darlington we call it Tebow

Spread Offense: Score in the RED ZONE (UPDATED)

Spread Offense: Score IN The Red Zone (UPDATED)

 
The average HS team has 15 3rd down plays a game and 33% of those in the Red Zone.

Have a plan from 5-20 and for inside the 5.

OK, to have a special package for inside the 5!

We carry 6-8 special Red Zone plays for 5-20, we practice 3-4 a week starting in the pre-season and pick the best 3 to take into the game weekly, if we use 1 in a game we rotate in another one

What additional plays did we find that worked?

1. We developed a inside the 5 package based on the Single-Wing but we also used this all over the field.



2. If you have been reading this blog, you know that I am a heavy snag team we found variations.

We added a variation to our 2 man snag play Thanks to Brennan Marion..

We tagged our snag play with slot fade a lot more this year and it work wonders









Please make sure you check out the clips below, thought process and links! 
************************BELOW IS THE ORIGINAL ARTICLE************************
Scoring in the Red Zone is essential to all offenses. Teams that are in the Spread can have problems when they get inside the 20.

I divide the Red Zone into 3 Sections 20-13, 13-5, 5-0. In my experience that is when the defense makes changes, at the 13 and then again at the 5.

#1 High 20-13

Think normally, think Smash and Snag concepts in the passing game and stay normal in the run game.

Smash for us is
#1 WR has an IN
#2 WR has an IN
#3 WR has a CORNER

3 man Snag have worked great for us... pretty standard
#1 WR has the SNAG
#2 WR has the CORNER
#3 WR has the BUBBLE

We had success with 2 new variations this of Red Zone offense due to our use of an H-Back this past season!


#2 From the 13 -5

We run a lot of Inside Zone slice and Run Pass Options.  We used this to our advantage, especially because for us a number of the teams we play play man coverage in the Red Zone. Here are two clips of us using a play-action shot in the Red Zone! We would motion a back into the backfield and fake Inside Zone Slice with a wheel concept.




#3 Inside the 5
Our Best Play this year inside the 5 was getting a H-back and TE in the game with the ability to run Inside Zone Slice Downhill at teams. But most teams will put 9 in the box and go press man on the outside so our QB could throw fade to either side



Have a game plan for the Red Zone in the Spread.
Don't be afraid to have a heavy package inside the 5, H-backs, double tights or Single Wing.

Thoughts On Game Planning & Other Items (Part 1)

Thoughts On Game Planning & Other Items (Part 1)

I am a numbers guy so let's talk a few....

The Average HS Football team runs 65 plays on Offense...

15 3rd downs per game.

9 between -11 to 25
5 in the Red Zone
and 1 coming Out

As a matter of fact you average 3 plays a game coming out!
of those open field 3rd down plays 6 out of the 9 are between 4-10 yards.

You will play approximately 15 snaps in the Red Zone (25 in)
and have 8 P&10 plays.....

Why Am I giving you all this data?

I call it the economy of how to plan and how to practice your plan...

3 things that kill offensive drives 1) TFL, 2) Turnovers, 3) Sacks (this will be helpful later)

So when you do your scouting for the week, shouldn't you spend as much Time OR really more on Red Zone than 3rd Down?

16 plays in the RZ as opposed to 15 3rd Down Calls which by the way (5 will be in the Red Zone)
Coming Out (why do teams not keep the same 3 or 4 plays a game, perhaps even all season????)
Shouldn't your 3rd and short be bread and butter plays and maybe a shot off of it?

The Economy of Game Planning - Part 1 just the data...

If for some reason you have checked out our 20-minute Clinic on the Counter Run game and Variations here it is....

Wide Receivers need to know their ABC’s and A stands for Agility.


That’s right the A stands for agility. Playing Wide Receiver and then becoming a Wide Receiver coach; coaching Wide Receivers is home. It’s where I found a lot of peace. As I grew in this profession, I became a QB guy and while I love it there nothing is like coaching the DirtyBoyz as we called them. I want to talk about three things I focus on teaching the Wide Receivers on a weekly basis and drill during the season, in the next few posts. The ABC’s of WR play and yes, the A stands for Agility!

One of the Best Wide Receiver coaches in the game is Keith Williams, former Nebraska WR coach and he says “Don't master the route, master the break. The routes change, but the breaks stay the same.” So when it comes to agility work, everything is focused on mastering the breaks and getting off the ball.

Agility work starts with the foot cadence. Getting the wide receivers to activate or warm-up their feet is important before we get to the drill of drills red light / green light.




Route Geometry as Williams calls it must be mastered during our red light / green light drill. You know the math teacher in me loves the name as well, LOL. All the breaks on the Route tree are 45, 90 or you run 180 degrees. Master them.

The first clip shows how to coach and work a lot of wideouts on this concept at the same time.  Clip taken from Coach Joe Price III, who is now the Director of Player Personnel for UTSA.




This clip shows what the drill looks like in an in-season practice. This clip is brought to us by Coach Pat McCann, wideout coach at Eastern Washington University




The last thing we work on when it comes to agility is releases including Diamond and Foot Fire. Clip here shows Coach Donte Ellington of ACU in Texas walking through his wideouts on release.




Please Make Sure You follow these 5 WR coaches – 5 news ones in Part 2....
1.       Keith Williams 
2.       Joe Price
3.       Donte Ellington 
4.       Pat McCann 
5.       Andre Powell

Shawn Liotta's new book No Huddle No Mercy

A few years ago, I had the opportunity to see Coach Liotta speak at a Glazier Clinic in Indianapolis. His "No Huddle No Mercy" offense was the heading to all of his clinic talks that weekend. He puts in work. I think he had seven sessions! What struck me was his innovation taken from different teams he coached from Indoor League arenas to the High School field. He and I have kept in touch ever since. So this off season I was excited to see Shawn put all his thoughts into a book. I was able to quickly secure a copy and have started to fully immerse myself. My only negative is my old eyes have trouble with the small font. BUT it is chuck full of content! Plus,  that's why they make "readers" for us old guys... just don't call me (ok) Boomer. 




One hundred and twenty six pages of  pictures, charts and diagrams. This book has it all! The foreword by John Jenkins is priceless! The "No Huddle No Mercy" book has ten chapters ranging from Philosophy, Playing Fast, Off Season Implementation, and Troubleshooting issues. I will post a full review soon! Just give my old eyes some more time!


Here are a few sneak peeks!


John Jenkins Foreword!
Practice Plan Examples

Drill diagrams



Pictures from practice

Until that time check out Coach Liotta's WEBSITE

Check out his CoachTube 14 course series... 
He chalk talks all his plays!



Here are my favorites






If you are lucky enough to see him at a clinic he does offer game film for a small fee.
