Perfect Thursday has been a long tradition in football coaching. But every program seems to approach it differently. This is the practice plan for perfect Thursday that has worked best in my experience.
Of course, there’s a lot of other factors. This practice plan goes hand in hand with the 90 Minute Practice Plan week, which you can download for free above. I’ll talk about the step by step process, and all the factors that go into preparing the perfect Thursday practice plan.
Coach Dan Gonzalez has been working with Quarterbacks and the passing game for a long time. He’s a true expert on the subject. So I asked him to get on the phone and talk Quarterback ball handling for this week’s Football Coaching Podcast.
We go into detail about coaching the hand-off and coaching multiple different Quarterback fakes for your Play Action passing game in any offense. We also touch on zone read ball handling, drills for improving your exchanges in the backfield, and plenty more.
Under center, Pistol or Gun alignment. Doesn’t matter. It’s all here on this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast!
The 3-5-3 Defense, Georgia Military style, was the first defense I ever installed on my own. I’ve loved it ever since. Even when running other fronts as a base, the 3-3-5 Defense (or 5-3, or any combination of letters and numbers you want) has always been available as a change-up in our package.
This episode of The Football Coaching Podcast breaks down the feature that makes the defense unique. The stacks. It’s a great look at the concepts that are central to our 33 Stack Defensive System at Joe Daniel Football, and what you should look out for as a stack defense coach. Check it out!
A few years ago I sat down in a Glazier Clinic that Rick Darlington was presenting. Coach Darlington is a Single Wing guru from Florida and an incredibly entertaining speaker. I was just there to learn something I didn’t know and be entertained.
What I got was a lot more than that. It sparked a few ideas. I realized that the plays being run in the base package (which does NOT involve any ‘Spinner’ plays) were straight out of our Pistol Power Offense System.
Not long after that, I was adapting the Unbalanced Single Wing formation to the Pistol Power Offense System. That became the centerpiece of our very successful short yardage and 2-point conversion package.
In this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast, I’m sharing how that System was created with you. Plus you can download the Unbalanced Single Wing in the Pistol Power Offense play sheet up by entering your email up above here.
