spring football

starts tommorrow
i'm kinda excited a bit worried, its the 6th season i've been coaching some of these boys

my team motto/mantra for this season

"head, heart, muscle"



play with your head, think... play smart

play with your heart, don't give up..play with emotion

play with your muscles, use your skills... play with your abilities

I coached youth football for a few years when my kids were moving through the ranks. I remember one year when I had to pick up one of our better players from his house before a game. The kid said to me, "Coach, I don't know why, but all I want to do is hurt somebody real bad." We had a good season that year...

rough day,
they scored on the first 2 plays they ran
we couldn't get the ball past the line of scrimmage

we toughened up and held them at the end

we have to get better on the basicsmy asst kept wanting to run trick plays.....
if we can't run a sweep,we can't run a timing trick plays

Nevermind getting cheerleaders for the team all-stars.
They'll just be wasted on 6 year olds.

soccer ain't soccer, it's football. Americans just like to desecrate the hallowed name.

1st graders want to win, but they want ice cream after the game even more. Some of my kid's teams have gone winless and none of them could care less, so long as the ice cream truck gets flagged down after the game.

Good on you for working with these kids.

Exactly. Parents remember for months and years. Kids forget after the first bite of post-game pizza.
