Playing Center is not the most glamorous position. It’s the opposite.
In the NFL, the Left Tackle gets all the glory on the Offensive Line. Probably the only position to consistently get recognized up front.
Sure, there’s a few Centers who become well known. They usually have a high command of the offense and play for many years. And they’re snapping the ball to some of the top Quarterbacks in football.
In High School Football, the Center will rarely get that kind of recognition. His recognition is more likely to come from a bad snap, than from anything positive he contributes to the team.
Offensive Line Coaches know the truth. The Center is often the single most important guy in your blocking scheme.
Within our Pistol Power Offense System, there’s a lot of variation. We don’t always line up in Pistol (less than 1% of snaps this season). And Power isn’t always the top run play (it’s been Zone most of this season).
The one consistent factor in our System is that we are as good as the Center. His talent, work ethic, effort and mastery of the offense go a long way.
Rarely the most talented blocker. It’s more likely the opposite.
How you coach your Center is critical to score more points. In this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, I’ll break down just what you need to do to get more production from your center.
