How many times have you heard, “The quarterback is successful because of the system he runs?” Danny gave us the framework and the foundation to run OUR system. This year, our QB threw for 3,669 yards and 50 touchdown passes! But that’s not all – he also ran for another 978 yards and 14 TDs. Danny Gonzalez is one of the country’s best offensive minds. He is always working to upgrade the offense against the defensive changes. Stop being a “3 downs and a cloud of dust” offense. Get your boys in the modern age. They will get pumped up every Friday night! When you start seeing other teams use your plays that is when you know you have something special. Thank you Danny Gonzalez!

Dan's system does an amazing job of simplifying the process for the quarterback. The basic progression principles allow the quarterback to attack any defense or scheme. The systematic approach allows athletes to make plays instead of constantly thinking or looking for the best situation. The overall presentation of a play to a defense can look very complex, but the execution of each play is very simple. Dan has obviously invested of great deal of time into making a complete system that addresses all the situations that defenses are creating for offenses today. Dan's schemes enable coaches to comfortably call plays when facing aggressive or passive defensive schemes.

As an offensive staff we try to stay on top of new passing game developments every off-season. Studying Dan’s newest innovations and what they can add to or enhance in our own passing scheme has been part of our offseason routine for years. I’ve had the opportunity to study Dan’s latest system update, which relies on new concept-based verbiage, and was blown away. A lot of passing game teaching methods out there are good only with the most basic concepts, or use sophisticated concepts but are needlessly complicated. The great thing about Dan’s system is how intuitive it is. It allows for tiered learning so that principles can carry over from the most basic concepts run at lower levels or feeder programs to the most sophisticated NCAA/NFL concepts. This has always been the case, but now Dan has created a method of communicating his system in which a play can be called with 3, 4, or 5 words that communicates formation, pass pattern, QB thought process, and even navigation tags. Any coach that wants to stay on the cutting edge of the passing game owes it to himself to check it out.

Since 2016, we have gotten great results using ACTS and Dan's passing system since 2016. The genius of the system lies in the combination of a simple method of reads for the QB, versatility in route structures, and the ability to use the navigation tags. Until now, the challenge was limiting verbiage and hand signals as a no-huddle no-wristband team. The new updated verbiage removes those challenges completely, giving us the ability to keep the variation in patterns and navigation tags while maintaining simple communication. We now can communicate the protection, all WR/TE/RB routes, and QB read in just 3 signals. There is no need to choose between being multiple and playing fast. The new terms give us the best of both worlds.

I contacted Dan late last spring to see what he could do for our passing game. I had no idea that changing some verbiage and a few routes ideas would lead the Marauders to the 3rd best record in the history of Marcus High School. Simply talking to our QBs about Taking the Advantage …the Concept and then the Third Fix to Scramble was brilliant for our kids.

Working with Dan Gonzalez has helped us to improve our passing game tremendously while staying true to our offensive identity. We have become more multiple formationally and our receivers are able to play outside or in the slot effectively because of the short learning curve. Dan's terminology has allowed us to make easy adjustments based on what we see defensively and to attack in a variety of ways. The navigation tags and consistent progressions have elevated our Quarterback play at every level. Dan is constantly updating and improving the information that he provides and is readily available when a question arises. He does a tremendous job!
