When we go out to do private clinics, we get a chance to hear some of the most incredible stories from you youth football coaches. Some of what you have to endure might have even made even Old Testament Job wince. I will never forget the story I heard last year from a youth football coach that was running my system for the first time. The head of his organization was against it from the start, the head honcho wanted this team to stick with his “tried and true” Power I. Now mind you, I have nothing against the Power I, we ran it in years past. BUT the Power I was not working with this grouping of kids and this organizations teams were losing consistently, losing big and most importantly, losing players.
Worst to Almost First
Well our friend decided to try our system out of near desperation after แทงบอลออนไลน์ yet another losing season. His team went on to post a 9-1 record, a huge improvement over the 2 win season of the previous year. His team quadrupled it’s offensive production and had 9 different kids scoring touchdowns. You would have thought the head of the organization would have been giving this coach a golden wristwatch and keys to the city right? Nope, he told our friend, “You’ll never beat team X with that offense”, So our heroes team wins 9 games, makes it to the super bowl and loses the championship game, has fun, get’s all the kids involved and retains everyone and all the big cheese can say is “You’ll never beat team X with that offense” ?????
Last Place Coach Advises Super Bowl Coach
Mind you the critic’s team not only did not win a game that season, they only scored 4 touchdowns in THE ENTIRE SEASON. I kid you not, I’m not exaggerating an iota. The gaulle of someone with that kind of scrawny production criticizing a coach that had performed a 180 degree turnaround ? As unbelievable and ridiculous as this may sound, it is oh so true and unfortunately more common than you might think. Just be prepared to bite your tongue and be diplomatic, there are lots of parents and even coaches out there with no history of success that either think they know more than you or are so jealous of your success, will try and discount it at every turn. All you can do is smile, bite your tongue and hope they read a copy of “Atlas Shrugged” some day.
