PSSO S4E11 Putting Together Your First Days Practice Scripts

A live chat about setting up your first day’s practice scripts for your Spread Offense, Pro Style Offense, Triple Option Offense or Wing T offense.

This week’s podcast we jump into a quick strategy session where we set up a practice script live for the first day of practice. Once you get those plays in your spreadsheet you can easily create multiple scripts like Inside Run and Team Offense.

If you haven’t been much of a practice script writer, make this the season you start. Even if you just start with a team offense period script. It’s a great practice as a coach to get your mind thinking about how you want to string plays together. It’s one thing to look at a defense and say this or that will work but it’s another to set up a sequence of calls that controls a defense or sets up future plays to be highly effective based on what teams have seen from you before.

What you can learn from Frost’s UCF Offense.  Get RPO tricks, the “Spacing” concept and “Shakes” route from these 5 plays broken down.

UCF under Scott Frost had one of the most prolific offenses of Division I football last season.

PSSO S4E7 Covering Cover 4 and the Shot Play to take against it.

What are the basics of Cover 4? This one play is the best way to take a shot against it.

This episode marks the fourth episode of our spread offense passing series where am breaking down different coverages and their individual strengths and weaknesses. This week is Cover 4 which is a great coverage for defenses but in my opinion is one of the most difficult for coaches to teach.

Cover 4 can be attacked on the edges but watch out for those squatting Safeties! True cover 4 is a match up coverage like Cover 2 which is why it can be difficult to throw against. Fortunately there are some good options – especially a Shot pass I picked up from Tom Herman that I think you will love!
