What are the advantages of using the Onside Kick every time? I’m putting it to the test this season!
In general, I’m a pretty conservative coach. We don’t call a lot of blitzes on defense. Run a balanced offense. Nothing too exciting.
But after 3 weeks of miserable kick coverage, a change had to be made. Enter the onside kick. Not just once, either. Onside kick every time.
We studied Kevin Kelley’s DVD from CoachTube: Gaining Possessions Using the Onside Kick and then made the change after Week 3 (when we gave up one return for a TD, and nearly gave up another that might have cost us the game). This episode tells you all you need to know about making that change.
