What are “good” football plays when you are coaching youth football?

There are many ways to define a “good” football play, but many players, parents and youth football coaches have it all wrong.

Many youth football coaches don’t even bother to analyze their football plays. They have a general “feel” for what is working and what isn’t and rely on that “feel” to determine which plays they should continue to go with or those they feel they should stop running.

First Step- The Stat Guy

The first season we had film and a real stat person, I was shocked at how my perceptions varied from the results on the film and our stat charts. Many times our internal biases or emotions get in the way of แทงบอลออนไลน์ accurate analysis of what’s actually happening out on the field.

We now use a very simple manual “Easy Scout” method that is detailed in my book. Our stat person knows ahead of time which play we will run. We are a no-huddle team and our stat-person, just like all of our players and coaches has a wrist band and he knows the codes we use to call in the plays. This allows our stat guy to know which play we are running before we run it. His accurate stats then give us a non biased and non intrusive “realtime” data compilation of our plays ready for us all to see.

Easy Scout

Using the “Easy Scout” we then determine during each defensive possession our strategy and adjustments for the upcoming series. But how do you do that for your team? Many coaches just use an average yards per carry stat to determine if a play is successful or not.

Real World Example

Let’s take an example, a 43 Reverse play. Let’s say your team got the following yards the 5 times you ran it: -5, 0, -7, 1, 80. The average yards per carry would have been about 14, a nice average right?

On the other hand let’s take a play like 16 power, let’s say you got gains of: 6,1,7,5,2,6,10,0,5,6 for an average of 4.8 yards. If you take the average yards per carry comparison, it looks like the 43 Reverse is a much better play doesn’t it? You have 4.8 yards compared to 14, seems like a no-brainer, but hold your horses.
