One of the things I truly love about having technology constantly at our fingertips is the ability to constantly learn (and teach) football ideas. I am completing one of several projects related to football; the one with the most over-arching relevance is what I am calling my "Hit Lists":
Used as a game planning, QB teaching, or even professional development tool, these lists cover 5 major coverage categories and provide the user with a "ready reference" on attacking a given defense. Each coverage will have between 30-40 ideas, and each idea is accompanied by a coaching clip (complete with telestration) highlighting a specific principle. This is much more detailed than saying "4 verts vs. Cover 3"; the guide takes you into the drop angle of specific defenders and in some cases, give outlines in altering the defense's call to get the desired response.
Projects like this highlight my study of the defenses my coaches will likely see in the upcoming season. The coach is then equipped with a ready-reference catalog to use during game planning or offseason preparation. More importantly, it does not lock in a coach's creativity; rather, it serves as means to unlock new ideas.
Living in Allen, TX and using this outlet to not only stay close to the game I love, but to help pass on what I have learned from some of the game's great coaching minds.
