“Blitz Paths” are a very convoluted way to say “modular blitzes.” Blitz paths are pieces of blitzes that can be called together to mix and match pieces of different defenses. It’s not the most simple thing to understand either.

On this episode Joe and Daniel are joined by Coach Chris Vasseur, aka Coach Vass, to educate our audience on what exactly blitz paths are, why we should use them, and how to game plan them from week to week.

In football, there are many ways to throw the ball around. Many coaches use two primary types of concepts; full field or mirrored routes. Either can be effective, but mirrored route concepts may fit you best.

On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss the differences of the two concept types, why you should use mirrored routes, and how to game plan to defeat your opponent on Friday nights.

Install season is just a couple of months away! Is your install schedule locked in? How are you getting from new team to playoff contender this year?

On this episode, Joe and Daniel discuss the key pieces of an install schedule, why the schedule matters, and how they’re progressing each side of the ball.

May 23, 2024

Offseason, and more specifically Summer, is upon us. It’s time to convince kids to come spend their summer mornings (or evenings) picking up heavy things and putting them down. But, we all know you have a lot of competition for their time. So, how do you build the buy in and improve your summer weights culture?

On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss the intricacies of small school summer workout programs, what you can do to improve your numbers, and what the alternatives are to “mandatory” participation.

 

May 16, 2024

2-Tight formations are all the rage in small school football, especially against odd front defenses. If you’re running one of those (3-4, 3-3) then it would be smart to have a plan for how you’ll align to and attack a 2-tight formation.

On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss everything you need to know about aligning to and defending 2-tight formations this year.

 

May 9, 2024

Counter (maybe only falling under Power) is one of the most popular run plays in High School football today! Everyone has a version, and they’re all useful. But, why do so many variations exist?

On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss the foundations of Counter, why they carry multiple variations, and what the advantages of each are.

 

May 2, 2024

In a lot of states, spring time is the second best time of the year, right behind the fall. We get to blow the dust off of the pads and helmets and get back on the practice field for a couple of weeks, and see what our kids (and coaches) remember. 

On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss what your Spring Practice should really be used for, how to organize your practice, and how to evaluate what you installed.

 

Apr 25, 2024

Winning programs have more than “great schemes” in common. The best programs have a sense of accountability built into them. A self-governing team accomplishes more with less, because everyone is bought in. The term we’ve given this trait of accountability is Culture!

On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss the big buzz word, what it means, why some coaches struggle with it, and how you can ensure your program is on the right path to a great culture.

Developing your Offensive Line is one of the most important tasks you can perform as a coach. Whether you’re the Offensive LIne coach, the Offensive Coordinator, or the Head Coach, you’ll find your success goes as the OL development goes.

On this episode Joe and Daniel are joined by Owasso Rams Co-OC and Offensive Line Coach Justin Morsey to discuss what a developed offensive lineman looks like, how to evaluate the guys on your squad, and what your development program should look like throughout the year.

 

Apr 11, 2024

Offensive Coordinators LOVE trying to break your defensive rules. As defenses get more “simple,” OC’s try to make your simplicity work against you. Even your most basic rules can become jumbled when dealing with condensed edges and TE Nub formations.

On this episode Joe Daniel and Daniel Chamberlain are working through defending TE Nub, taking on a condensed edge, and how to do all of that without losing your defensive identity.

 

Apr 4, 2024

You’ve probably noticed that Joe and Daniel have been starting the podcasts a little differently recently. We’re doing what all good coaches do, stealing an idea and making it our own. 

On this episode, we’re talking about our new “Level Up” section of the podcast, how it’s making us better coaches, and how we hope you can join in and get better yourself.

Watching game film is just like every other skill in coaching, it takes practice to get good at. Unfortunately, we don’t watch enough film when the pressure is off as coaches. We see it as a time-sink and keep that for weekends before in-season games. But, if we commit to a process to improve, we can get more out of those weekends with less time expended.

On this episode, Joe Daniel and Daniel Chamberlain are discussing the importance of watching game film, what to look for while watching, and how to put your practice plan into action.

In the current world of high fly, high movement, “formation them to death” offenses that seemingly have all the rules in their favor, just getting an efficient defense on the field can feel like an impossible task. 

On this episode Joe and Daniel are joined by Coach Chris Cole to talk game planning an opponent, what adjustments you should or shouldn’t make in your coverages, and how to build a practice schedule to minimize those blown coverages against your opponents best concepts.

 

Feb 29, 2024

Concussions have, unfortunately, been a part of football for as long as we can remember. Even when it was just a statement, “Dude, I got my bell rung,” they were still happening. Today is no different. In the “Arms Race” between safe football equipment and Bigger, Faster, Stronger athletes, there is ample opportunity for concussions to make a devastating impact on your players and team.

On this episode, Joe and Daniel are joined by Dr. Samantha Chamberlain PT DPT to talk all about concussions, what they are, what they look like, how we can return to sport, and most importantly how we can mitigate them in the first place.

 

Feb 22, 2024

In 2023-24 we saw a LOT of football being played out of the two-high safety shell. High School to the NFL, size and league did not matter. What’s this “static” look all about, and how are we coaching our players out of it?

Joe and Daniel are joined by University of Tulsa Safety Coach (and friend of the podcast) Dominique Franks top talk differences in 1-high vs 2-high, what coverages fit best, and how safeties are still included in the run fits from their two-high alignment.

 

Feb 15, 2024

The Quick Game isn’t some new fangled thing in football. In fact, in the passing game, it may be as old as the power/counter combo. However, it is still extremely effective. The quick game can give you a quick strike game plan to take advantage of what your opponent is giving you defensively.

On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss the quick game, what it consists of, why you need it, and how to use it with the offense you already have installed.

Clinic Season is a FULL GO! But, are you getting the most out of it? Do your coaches disappear to the bar on Friday night and show up to catch the ride home? Are they sitting at the back of the room on their phone? We often take “vacations” for clinics when we should be sharpening our sword for next season.

On this episode Joe and Daniel, who was excessively late, are joined by Mike Carter to discuss what you should be taking from this clinic season.

Decentralized command is a tenant of leadership for us military members. In football, you just call it hiring a coordinator. But, that task isn’t always as simple as “just hiring a coordinator.” Sometimes you get to hire someone in, and sometimes you have to promote from the guys you have.

On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss how to do each of those things, what to do if no one is ready to be the guy, and ways to bring in someone that’s an expert.

 

Jan 18, 2024

As with the Defensive Staff Break Down from two weeks ago, we go through all the ways you can organize your Offensive Staff to get the most efficient coach-to-player coverage.

This episode was recorded at the 2024 American Football Coaches Association Convention in Nashville, TN.

 

Jan 11, 2024

Adding to your staff can be a great thing! Many coaching staffs are short at least one guy, and likely more than one. But, if you aren’t getting that new coach ready to be a functioning part of the team, you may find yourself with another fan with a whistle.

On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss staff additions, how to focus their training to be on your staff, and why you need to be so efficient in your training.

 

Jan 4, 2024

Your team is only as good as your staff. But, your staff is only as good as your ability to organize them. You have to get the best coaches coaching the players they’re the best at coaching to maximize your success.

On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss defensive staff organization, what it should look like, what variable can change it, and how to pick the coaches you’re using.

Last week we talked about finding the perfect job, so it’s only right to follow it up with HOW to get the job. We invited eightlaces.org founder, Chris Fore, to come shed some light on this topic.

On this episode we’re talking all about how to make yourself stand out, what mistakes will hurt your chances, and how to prepare for the interview.

 

Dec 21, 2023

It’s job hunting season. Many coaches, head and assistant, are moving on from one place to find greener pastures. But, what is the perfect job? 

On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss why the job matters, what the red flags are to stay away from, and what things you should target in a job.

 

Dec 14, 2023

There comes a time in every job when talent must be rearranged. Football Coaching is no different. You could even say, as a Head Coach, talent management is the majority of your job. But, when is the right time to make those changes?

On this episode Joe and Daniel discuss the reasons a coach should make a change, and what the right way to go about making changes is.

Dec 7, 2023

Communication tends to be most Football Coaches’ weak spots. In an Alpha dominated world, we just think everyone else around us has our knowledge base or assume they know what needs to be done. Unfortunately, in most cases, our assumptions are wrong.

On this episode Joe Daniel and Daniel Chamberlain discuss what a plan of communication, or a Standard Operating Procedure, is as well as why you need to prepare yours now and how you can implement it with you staff this year.
