Athletic Performance: Off-Season Program 2018 (part 4), Social Media

It’s that time of the year again. The footballs are locked away in the equipment room and your staff is starting to meet again. As a coach, you’re hitting clinics and the AFCA Convention. But you still have a job to do. Your job from January through early August is to get your players to be more athletic, while still respecting their other sports they play and their grades. Your staff needs to sit down and meet to figure out the following, but here are my tips for who to follow on Social Media in order to improve as an Athletic Performance Coordinator.

Ironman Football Blog Offense 2018

“Meaningful-Specific versus Wandering-Generalities”

I heard Bruce Prichard use this phrase on his podcast “Something to Wrestle” and it hit home. This is what your offense (and for that matter, every aspect of your football program) should debate. You always want your program to be meaningful and specific versus wandering and in generalities.

The Ironman Football Blog Offense 2018 is meaningful and specific. It will guide you to the right place, and tell you why you’re going there. It includes a 24 play cut-up with a script (PDF format) and the playbook itself (PDF format) which includes: install, formations, motions/shifts, RPO’s, quick game, running game, 5-step drops, sprint outs, pass protections and play-actions.

IMFB: Blocking Circuit Video

Our blocking circuit is a great way to teach and preach fundamentals every time you rep offense! We train our players from their knees to teach hand placement, GHP, and hip pop with your strike. It gives coaches a chance to focus on players in a slower, safer environment without worry of injury or missing pieces of the puzzle.

Retooling Buck Sweep

Prior, we had been running buck sweep the traditional way, down, kick, run inside the kick out. But we’ve increasingly had a harder and harder time finding outside running plays to keep defenses honest. Outside of a pull on inside zone read or a jet sweep (have never had a ton of success with them) I’ve OC’ed an inside run team the past three seasons.
