It didn’t seem like we ever recovered from that,” head coach Mike Empting said. “Again, a lot of young kids and it takes a veteran crew to overcome when a team gains some momentum like that. It actually kind of snowballed on us after that.”
Is that excuse going to be used all year long, “We are young”? Thats all I ever hear. How about making some adjustments at halftime? I have been to 3 games now and dont see any. I also see the same 6 plays being run over and over on offense. It just depends on if they go the left or right. Im not the only one in the stands yelling out loud how about running more than the same 6 plays. Other teams dont even need to scout or watch film with this team when you dont mix up the play calling. One last thing. I have noticed that there are coaches and scouts for Alex that were coaching 20-25 years ago when I played. Dont you think their ‘ways’ have gotten old or other teams have figured them out by now? Nobody applies to coach in the Alex system? Sorry frustrated fan who wants to see changes.

I once got to listen to two VERY sucessful High School Coaches (their teams are in the State Playoffs pretty regular) once and both of them stated that a High School team doesn’t really need more than 10 plays in a playbook. Execution of those plays is the key and anything more than that can get to be too much. Granted, those 10 plays should be adjusted from year to year based on strengths/talent, but this is high school football, not the pros where they need a three ring binder full of plays.

That’s right, this is high school which means they should be able to run more plays. Nobody said anything about a 3 ring binder. The offense they are running is 8th grade. You cant continually run the same thing over and over when you see the same results week after week.
