Why we are continuing to argue about what your videos are telling you is beyond me. It was a poorly executed play across the board. Seems like this is just turning into arguing for arguments sake now.
Heh, have to agree with you. As someone who worked with youth and talking to various individuals involved in the game your point was well received earlier. It not text book nor something that just comes from a manual. Most coaches take what they know or learned from such materials and evolve it to fit their scheme and then they may have to adapt one step further for the personnel involved. Can this guy make this step successfully? How can I change it to fit his footwork and his reaction tendencies?
So thanks for the insight since I know you gained the chance to speak first hand with some personnel. Just gives me more idea to pass onto others since that's what it is all about. I learned in a coaching clinic how so much information, schemes and techniques are simply re-processed and adapted.
Makes one always thankful to get different viewpoints from others so thanks to you and Rey on that. Nice article as well.
