Kevin Kelley is a 8 time Arkansas State Championship Pulaski Academy. He’s known for doing this a little different. Like onside kicking every single time.
A while back, I adopted the same philosophy. It really is a difference maker for your team when you commit to it!
Check out this podcast to hear Coach Kelley and myself talk about the onside kick. The logic behind it, how to study the analytics, and why you’re going to want to use the onside kick every time for your team.
You’ve got athletes that want to play at the next level. And they’re capable of doing it. But how do you point them the right direction?
It’s a thin line between helping your players get exposure, and wasting your athlete’s time and money by attending a bunch of one-day ‘camps’ (fundraisers?).
This episode of The Football Coaching Podcast is more like a JDFB Quick Clinic. I’m answering a listener question on recruiting… because we all need to work on it.

Years ago, I wanted to learn the Double Wing Offense and turned to the Internet for resources. After all, you can’t just visit your local college to learn this stuff.
I found an amazing resource to learn from. That was Coach Jerry Vallotton’s “The Toss” book, available at DoubleWing.org. Easily the best resource I found then, and still great.
This episode of The Football Coaching Podcast is your chance to learn the Double Wing Offense from Coach Val! Check it out as we talk about the philosophy behind the offense, the base play series, and the details of coaching The Toss, Coach Val’s Super Power play.
The Play Action Pass is a critical part of any offensive playbook. You’ve got base runs, counters, and play action. That creates a simple series based offensive package.

Check out this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast to find out how we’ve simplified the Play Action Pass for the Pistol Power Offense System.
Every football coach knows how important Special Teams are to winning football games. If it’s one-third of the game, why don’t coaches spend a whole lot more time on it?
There’s good reason. If you’re going to be a Coach Simple, Play Fast, Win type of coach - it needs to carry over to your Special Teams philosophy.
Check out this episode of The Football Coaching Podcast to find out the special teams schemes that have worked best for my teams. And how you can add them to your own football team.
I’m not the biggest fan of 7 on 7, and that’s no secret. It’s not because it’s an offensive drill or because there’s anything wrong with the concept, either. It’s more about how 7 on 7 has evolved in the football landscape over the years.
But the truth is, 7 on 7 football can be really valuable for your team. It’s a chance to learn the route concepts, learn the coverage concepts, and get better as a football program. You just need to do it the right way.
Check out these 10 tips for getting the most from 7 on 7 football this off-season. And remember, it doesn’t matter if you’re winning with no pads on in June.
