FormationsWe have quite a few but it doesn't affect the linemen and are learned in spring and during summer passing league. We use formations to gain an advantage but we don't try to,FINESSE anyone. It's the one reason opposing coaches' think we run so m.uch stuff.

Motion for each positionMake motion count-if they don't respect it make them pay, and if they respect it

too much make them pay.
A) Rip/Liz B) Short Motion

Practice BreakdownA) We have a lot of two-way guys. Practice hitting each area one day a week and that's it. Don't come back to it unless they really screw it up or it's completely new.
