Great action on a remarkable document that may be as highly undervalued by many today than any other formal document. Speaking of men who had guts! Happy 4th once again. I just enjoyed one of the most awesome fireworks shows celebrating our American Independence ever!

Small world? Greg & I's current head coach, Cody White, was the offensive coordinator at Odessa Permian when Friday Night Lights was filmed. Larry Moore coached with us in 2006, before that he was the head coach/AD at Georgetown, TX where they used his facilities in the filming of Varsity Blues.

Many of you guys know about Lineman Challenges and such already..but some of you may not be too familiar with this so I posted about the event we attended this past Saturday morning. Fellow offensive line cohort Coach Jeff Wigington was talking to DeSoto line coach Kelly Spiller at our Denison football clinic this past Spring as the DeSoto staff led by former Jacket football coach and current Desoto offensive coordinator Todd Peterman graciously shared their offensive knowledge. Coach Spiller invited us to this Big MAn Bash..so myself and new JAcket varsity football coach Wes Scott drove down with Coach with coach "Wig"..It was a great event and done very well...Desoto Head Football Coach Claude Mathis had his whole staff there along with folks from Nike Sparq training...check out this link if you are not familiar with them http://www.nike.com/nikeos/p/sparqtraining/en_US/
Great deal for kids to get recogninzed and compare some objective testing data..good motivational tool!
Thanks Coach Spiller and the whole Desoto staff! We'll take a rain check on the bucket of chicken..
Here are some of the events I shot with my Flipcam..

We visited Tulsa this Spring and got to spend some time with Herb Hand a couple of other times. The more we play around with the H back stuff the more I like it. I have no doubt that it will simplify the looks we will get from the defense, and it will help us more in getting to a good play. As all spread teams will tell you, its all about getting playmakers in open space with angles or numbers. The H back stuff can get you to open grass and numbers at the same time after you see what the defense is doing to you. Most spread teams have the ability to change the play at the LOS, but the H back stuff also allows you to change your formation (numbers) to get more people to the point of attack.

"This isn't the response I wrote, but I am going to wait on that...
Fundamentally, this is a circular argument, because there is so much that can be talked about - because a QB has to do so much in his position.
If you get the mechanics right, you not only get a better player, you get all the rest of it as well. Why? Like simple life, you meet my needs as a person, I will listen to you and do what you ask.
When you help a young man solve a major mechanics problem in his heart, his understanding of how to play the position, et al, goes up. In the end, you have a kid who plays with more confidence.
Getting by on bad mechanics isn't something to use as a justification, for not teaching them - and you AREN'T suggesting that MP - you said - "who doesn't need work?"
I am saying that those who diminish mechanics as less important might be missing a SERIOUS OPPRTUNITY, AND NEED inside a kid to understand, and when you skip that, you leave that kid to his own conclusions about it - and get Tim Tebow.
In the absence of a compelling argument, or reason, for doing something that a kid sees as valuable most kids just do what they think is best. I totally get your attitude toward mechanics, because the BS that has been passed off as "good mechanics" would make me say the same thing.
heck with it, most coaches just want a kid that can throw the ball when and where they want it - they just have to find one that can already throw, and voila, problem solved."
post 2 :
"Here is my take on Tebow and what I have done and thought about this…
I have it on good authority that Scott Loeffler, a good coach from all I have heard, made his best effort to get Tim to change his windup in the Spring, but whenever Tim returned to the pocket under pressure he just reverted.
I am not sure what Loeffler told him, or how much "buy in" he got from Tim.
Must not have stuck with Tim in the case here, because Tim got WORSE – and it makes me VERY ANGRY. Why? BECAUSE THAT AMOUNT OF TALENT SHOULDN’T HAVE TO BE SUBJECTED TO THE ABUSE HE IS ABOUT TO FACE IN HIS NFL DRAFT PREPARATION. IT DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY!
Truth is, Loeffler had a “no arm change” collar put on him by Urban in the media, not sure how strong it was behind the scenes – other than Urban’s comments of – “Just don’t mess with Tim’s motion.”
Here is the problem, Tim has had two "Interventions" in his mechanics. One with Mullen and the Bio-mechanics lab as a sophomore, and one with Loeffler, and both were largely unsuccessful. Honestly, the reason they were, was simply because that while both of these guys are phenomenal coaches in their own right, they seem to be missing some key ingredients in the "changing" of motions...I apologize if that sounds arrogant, I am just answering the question.
So, does that make Scott a bad coach, HECK NO, He is a GREAT COACH, but that isn’t the issue here. We are talking about something he had no REAL permission to mess with – Tim’s motion. What he did, apparently didn’t work.
These guys have so much God-given talent, and they can do so many things well, but struggle in some key area of their mechanics, and they experience SO MUCH heavy abuse that could be avoided. I am not sure I would do as well as Tim has with it...
Thanks for your patience, have a great day in football."
There is more there from Slack and the responses by others will open your eyes also.

A few years ago a dear coaching friend and accomplice of offensive football who mentored me in many ways (some good and some not so good!)passed away. His name was Rick Frazier and it is my hope and prayer that he is resting now with Our Lord. The former Cisco Jr. College (where I worked for him for two seasons) head man and also former boss of the Milwaukee Mustangs (Arena League) and Cisco High School (where he stepped down from CJC to coach his son Donnie). His claim to fame with me was that his first job was a head job at a small school nobody wanted to touch. THe place was Cumby, Texas, and the rest as they say is history. Here is a great story about that situation. I was also fortunate enough to befriend Coach Chuck Lawrence (now the head coach at Mineral Wells,Tx.). While coaching at Cisco I heard quite a few Cumby stories from Rick and Chuck. One of the funniest I recall is of the time when the Jr. High kids were showing up for their first workout and one kid showed up on the field in full gear plus a pair of cowboy boots. Hilarious! ANother I recall is their first year playing and they were getting beat pretty bad so Rick just started subbing defenders in each play without pulling a player off the field. When it got to a count of 15 players the flag finally came out! While at Cisco while defensive coordinator they played Snow College in a Bowl game. They could air it out big-time and so Rick was so flustered he could not get pressure or defend the pass that he dropped all 11 defenders. He said it looked classic on film to see all 11 defenders drop. THe bad news is that the QB still found a window and completed a pass!.After that game I believe he changed a lot philosophically.He went on to be very successful as defensive coordinator and head coach in the Arena Football League for Milwaukee. .Very great man and coach. HE always talked about being in the "KIDS" business in reference to being a coach and teacher and somewhere he still has my carbine rifle clip (from deer hunting trip) that was never returned. I'll get it later from you Ricky Joe!

or just click the title above for the details..
Enjoy! Sorry to say Jon that I think we are talking about two different Coach Tommy Hudspeths. More Later...
Great cutups of some power mixed with spread single wing. It sets up devastating play=action when mixed with the half-spin and carzy or loco option shovel. Some really nice variations shown here. Thanks to the gentleman listed who put this together apparently there is some affiliation with the Run to Daylight runningback academy. Great stuff!
This is a good article about Gus and the wildcat.

Greg Wright got me started in trading football videos in 2006 with about 10 videos. We now have 600 dvds. Anyway, part of that original 10 were the Gus Malzahn set that he made when he was the head coach at Shiloh Christian High School in Arkansas. Gus is Mr. wildcat, but much more than that. He is now the OC at Auburn and a cult hero. Here is my Gus story. Greg & I have had many discussions about Gus. We were having one of these chats after a offseason workout inthe indoor facility. Former yellow jacket, Ryan Taylor, was hanging around. He was a soph at Tyler Junior College being recruited by many D1 schools. We walked out the door talking about Gus and BAM there he was. Shock, awe, reverence, whatever you want to call it, I had it. We didnt' get to talk to him that day but the seed was planted.
